Date: 21-Jun-2006 From: Ed Dry <quepasa2.5netzero.com> Subject: New Website: Rhythmic English Phrasing
Rhythmic English Phrasing or REP is a temporary English sign system modified to help deaf children and their parents feel some of the currents and categories of correct English... just as hearing children know when English sounds right.
Structuring around the (copular) BE-focus may tell us much more about how hearing children map English so easily and why deaf children often do not.
The site is just being completed, and I would love your thoughts. Please visit: www.deafphrasing.com
