Advances in the Sign Language Development of Deaf Children (Perspectives on Deafness)

The use of sign language has a long history. Indeed, humans’ first languages may have been expressed through sign. Sign languages have been found around the world, even in communities without access to formal education. In addition to serving as a primary means of communication for Deaf communities, sign languages have become one of hearing students’ most popular choices for second-language study. Sign languages are now accepted as complex and complete languages that are the linguistic equals of spoken languages Advances in the Sign Language Development of Deaf Children.

Sign-language research is a relatively young field, having begun fewer than 50 years ago. Since then, interest in the field has blossomed and research has become much more rigorous as demand for empirically verifiable results have increased. In the same way that cross-linguistic research has led to a better understanding of how language affects development, cross-modal research has led to a better understanding of how language is acquired. It has also provided valuable evidence on the cognitive and social development of both deaf and hearing children, excellent theoretical insights into how the human brain acquires and structures sign and spoken languages, and important information on how to promote the development of deaf children.

This volume Advances in the Sign Language Development of Deaf Children brings together the leading scholars on the acquisition and development of sign languages to present the latest theory and research on these topics. They address theoretical as well as applied questions and provide cogent summaries of what is known about early gestural development, interactive processes adapted to visual communication, linguistic structures, modality effects, and semantic, syntactic, and pragmatic development in sign.

Humans’ first languages may are expressed through sign. Today, sign languages are found around the world, including communities that don’t have access to education or literacy. additionally, to serving as a primary medium of communication for deaf communities, they need to become among the foremost popular choices for second language study by hearing students.

The status of sign languages as complex and complete languages that are clearly the linguistic “equal” of spoken languages is not any longer questioned. Research on the characteristics of visual languages has blossomed since the 1960s, and careful study of deaf children’s development of signing skills is pursued to get information to market deaf children’s development. Advances in the Sign Language Development of Deaf Children Equally important, the study of how children learn signing provides excellent theoretical insights into how the human brain acquires and structures sign languages. within the same sense that cross-linguistic research has led to a far better understanding of how language affects development, cross-modal research allows us to review the acquisition of language within the absence of spoken phonology.

This ebook Advances in the Sign Language Development of Deaf Children provides cogent summaries of what’s known about early gestural development, interactive processes adapted to communication, and therefore the processes of semantic, syntactic, and pragmatic development in sign. It addresses theoretical also as applied questions, often with attention on aspects of language which are (or perhaps are not) associated with the modality of the language.

Along with its companion volume, Advances in the Spoken Language Development of Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children, this Ebook will provide a deep and broad picture of what is known about deaf children’s language development in a variety of situations and contexts. From this base of information, progress in research and its application will accelerate, and barriers to deaf children’s full participation in the world around them will continue to be overcome Advances in the Sign Language Development of Deaf Children.
