Abstract:

This volume provides a unique cross-disciplinary perspective on the
external ecological and internal psycholinguistic factors that determine
sign bilingualism, its development and maintenance at the individual and
societal levels. Multiple aspects concerning the dynamics of contact
situations involving a signed and a spoken or a written language are
covered in detail, i.e. the development of the languages in bilingual deaf
children, cross-modal contact phenomena in the productions of child and
adult signers, sign bilingual education concepts and practices in diverse
social contexts, deaf educational discourse, sign language planning and
interpretation. This state-of-the-art collection is enhanced by a final
chapter providing a critical appraisal of the major issues emerging from
the individual studies in the light of current assumptions in the broader
field of contact linguistics. Given the interdependence of research, policy
and practice, the insights gathered in the studies presented are not only
of scientific interest, but also bear important implications concerning the
perception, understanding and promotion of bilingualism in deaf individuals
whose language acquisition and use have been ignored for a long time at the
socio-political and scientific levels.
