A Signing Deaf Child's Use of Speech.
Maxwell, Madeline M.
Sign Language Studies, n62 p23-42 Spr 1989
Longitudinal study of a deaf child's (with deaf signing and speaking parents) speech functions revealed that the child, before age three, rarely attempted speech imitation. By age five, the child had acquired new words through speechreading and had adjusted language modes to listener needs for flexible communication, and speech behavior assumed considerable importance.
