Stall, C. Harmon; Marshall, Philip H.
Sign Language Studies, n33 p313-18 Win 1981
Presents study designed to determine whether interruption in the use of the manual encoding modality would retard learning in prelingually deaf subjects. One group of students used finger spelling and finger numeration in learning eight pairs of number-word combinations while the other group used no manual encoding. Results show groups using manual encoding learned faster and showed better recall. (Author/BK)
