Objective and reliable transparency comprehension results have been obtained on the citation form of the 193 Amer-Ind signals as presented in the original Amerind Video Dictionary. Transparency ratings, as determined by three different scoring criteria, as well as the most common errors, are presented. While transparency (42–50%) was considerably less than what has been suggested in previous reports (80–88%) it was, nevertheless, well above what has been reported for signs from American Sign Language. Transparency of repetitive signals was significantly higher than that reported for kinetic and static signals. The implications for clinical practice are discussed.
