Priscilla Shannon Gutierrez considers educational policy with language and cognition in deaf children in Part Three: Language in Education; and in Part Four: Discourse Analysis, Melanie Metzger discusses eye gaze and pronominal reference in ASL. Part Five: Second-Language Learning presents the single chapter "An Acculturation Model for ASL Learners", by Mike Kemp. Sarah E. Burns defines Irish Sign Language as Ireland's second minority language after Gaelic in Part Six: Language Attitudes, the final area of concentration in this rigorously researched volume. The studies by the respected scholars featured in Pinky Extension and Eye Gaze make it an outstanding and eminently valuable addition to this series.
