Book Information


Title: English in International Deaf Communication
Edited By: Cynthia J. Kellett Bidoli
Elana Ochse
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 72

Signed languages are forms of human communication based on visual/gestural
perception as opposed to aural/oral. Those profoundly deaf and
hard-of-hearing individuals, who learn to sign from an early age, live in a
bilingual/bicultural environment composed of deaf and hearing realities and
hence learn both the signed and non-signed varieties of languages existing
in their societies. Outside English-speaking countries, in an increasingly
globalized world, deaf people come into contact with the English language
in specific domains; indirectly through interpretation and translation or
directly by learning it as a foreign language. The reception/production of
verbal, visual, multimodal texts in English facilitates international
communication and integration among the deaf and between deaf and hearing
people. The volume aims to explore a range of intercultural/interlinguistic
encounters with English, in a variety of international signed and
non-signed combinations.
