Creative Language Abilities of Deaf Children.
Marschark, Marc; West, Sue A.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v28 n1 p73-78 Mar 1985
Analysis of videotapes generated by four deaf and four hearing 12- to 15-year-olds revealed that deaf Ss showed considerable use of creative language devices when evaluated in sign rather than vocal language. Deaf Ss produced traditional types of figurative constructions at a rate equal to their hearing age mates. (Author/CL)
