This chapter reviews the current understanding of the acquisition of the lexicon in American Sign Language (ASL) and Manually Coded English (MCE). Specifically, the acquisition of first signs, negation, and wh-questions are discussed along with vocabulary size and its early development. Where possible, the development of signed languages is considered in light of specific variables such as degree of hearing loss, parental hearing status, and age of initial exposure to a signed language which likely affect sign language acquisition.

Keywords:   American Sign Langauge, deaf children, Manually Coded English
