The Development of Language-Like Communication Without a Language Model
Goldin-Meadow, Susan; Feldman, Heidi
Science, 197, 4301, 401-403, Jul 77
Deaf children unable to acquire oral language naturally and who are not exposed to a standard manual language can spontaneously develop a structured sign system that has many of the properties of natural spoken language. This communication system appears to be largely the invention of the child himself. (Authors/BT)
