Cued Speech. PEPNet Tipsheet
Cappiello, Samuel, Comp.; Quenin, Catherine, Comp.
Cued Speech (CS) is a tool used to make spoken languages visible. While it uses the hands to communicate information visually, it is not a form of sign language. Signed languages are languages in their own right and use the hands, body, and face to present complete concepts rather than words. They have their own grammar systems and vocabularies. Cued Speech is not a language at all, rather a system used to communicate traditionally spoken languages through vision alone. This tipsheet explains the use of cued speech. (Contains 2 resources.)
