Message 2: about hearing kids of deaf adults

Subject: about hearing kids of deaf adults

hi all,

i'm Kaile, a English language research student at National University
of Singapore and my thesis topic is on the ''Language learning
situation of Chinese hearing children with hearing-impaired adults''.

So far, i have only managed to locate one article ''hearing children
of deaf parents'' (by N. Schiff-Myers) in Language Development in
exceptional circumstances. I am having great difficulty with situating
my research study within the field of sign language studies because my
university doesn't subscribe to journals like American Annals of the
Deaf, Volta Review etc.

Hence, i was wondering if anyone can point me to useful journal
articles or books and if possible, send me the articles via my email

thanks very much for your time
