Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a major contribution to the literature on the social psychology of deafness and the linguistic bases of BSL and will be of definite interest to students of language and to anyone working with deaf people. As most of the findings it reports were unknown just 10 years ago, it is an impressive achievement." Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography
