Code Switching in Deaf Adults.
Hoffmeister, Robert; Moores, Donald F.
American Annals of the Deaf, v132 n1 p31-34 Mar 1987
Code switching (between oral and manual communication ) was examined with seven prelingually deaf adults. Deaf signers with deaf parents who learned American sign language (ASL) at an early age evidenced the most code switching behavior and the most English-like signed segments. Early signers with hearing parents were least likely to vary from ASL. (Author/DB)
