Overview

Relations of Language and Thought: The View from Sign Language and Deaf Children / Edition 1

This newest volume asks, 'Does growing up deaf or having sign language as a first language affect children's cognitive development?' The result is a unique exploration of the connection between what happens in the mind and what is communicated to others. Much of the discussion revolves around deaf children and sign language, but the applied and theoretical implications go to the roots of the study of language and thought.
