Communicating about People with Disabilities: Does the Language We Use Make a Difference?
Tyler, Lisa
Bulletin of the Association for Business Communication, v53 n3 p65-67 Sep 1990
Advocates incorporating "people first" language (focusing on ability rather than disability and distinguishing the person from the condition) in business communication courses. Investigates whether the conventions of "people first" language affects the attitudes or perceptions of readers. Finds that language did not make a significant difference in respondents' attitudes or perceptions of people with mental retardation. (SR)
