The 17th Volume in the Sociolinguistics in Deaf Communities Series

From Reference & Research Book News

Sociolinguistic experts analyze sign-language discourse in varying social contexts in this 17th volume of a series studying communication in deaf and hard of hearing communities. As in verbal communication, signed meanings may be construed differently by the receiver than intended by the conveyer either in sentence syntax or dialogue variations between different communities or cultures. Divided into four parts, analysts discuss the differences in discourse within American Sign Language, British Sign Language, and American Indian Sign Language. Methodologies in discourse analysis focus on face-to-face interaction to bring awareness and understanding to what is going on emotionally and socially with non-hearing, visual communicators.

Cynthia B. Roy is Professor, Department of Interpreting, Gallaudet University, Washington, DC.
