The Role of Fingerspelling in Simultaneous Communication.
Akamatsu, C. Tane; Stewart, David A.
Sign Language Studies, n65 p361-74 Win 1989
Analysis of videotapes of five trained teachers of deaf children found that the teachers did not fingerspell often, but when they did they sought to express a specific English word. Clarity of fingerspelled utterances varied greatly, ranging from whole-word gestalts to words wherein individual letters could be discerned. (Author/CB)
