Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts
This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."
This book is intended primarily for parents but will also be of interest to teachers and related professionals. The book addresses both practical and theoretical issues related to the development and education of deaf children. It considers these areas largely from a sign bilingual perspective.
