    American Sign Language and British Sign Language are the same things, right? Wrong. Just because both countries speak English doesn’t mean their Sign Language will be the same. We people who are hearing may not understand it, but for people all over the world who are deaf, they don’t have the same sign language techniques or even origins. Unlike, the American and English language, the two sign languages were not adopted from one another. Although, the two have minimal similarities the differences would make us question if these are real facts. Where do you think American Sign Language was adapted from, guess? British Sign Language?

The research I have conducted, altogether shows that the teaching of sign language- through the use of narrative storytelling, and trained teachers- creates awareness for deaf children to feel accepted and understood. Furthermore, the teaching and training of these deaf children allows them to be socialized so that they can be productive members of a society. Ultimately, I hope to utilize…

    any other language, it spreads and changes. People sign things differently which makes it unique to everyone. At deaf boarding schools, the students become a family. They support one another and are closely interlinked. I like the fact that the students become so close that they create name signs for one another. I recently just watched a film in one of my other classes, The Miracle Worker, that is a memoir of Helen Keller and is focused on her time with Anne Sullivan. When I watched the film, I…

I heard that some people in the deaf community are rude to hearing people. So I was just hoping to be accepted as a person who is learning ASL. I was very skeptical to what I was about to embark on. This deaf event did change how I viewed the deaf community. At a young age, I witnessed people using sign language. I did not…

    concept of the article I have educated myself even more since I read this article. Before I even took sign language I didn’t even think about the deaf community, much less if they were being oppressed or not. I never thought that they were oppressed for being Deaf something which isn’t wrong, just like your race (racism) and your gender (sexism). I believe that the word disability is socially constructed, and that we should stop using it. Before I read this article I didn’t even know about the…

We say a lot with our face, gestures, intonation and many other types of meaningful behaviour known as paralanguage. The word paralanguage was first used by Trager (1958) and refers to ‘non-phonemic but vocal component of speech, such as tone of voice,…

    conversation in complete silence? To have it be completely quiet, just white noise in the background, using only hands and body gestures to communicate and get the point across and understood. When watching sign language, anyone can tell you how expressive the language is and how beautiful the words simply flow from hand to hand, to each facial expression and gesture. Sign language is a beautiful gift that can be given to anyone, if they just took the time to learn it. Parents who know sign…
