Cohesion & Quality in Deaf & Hearing Children's Written English.
Maxwell, Madeline M.; Falick, Tracey Gordon
Sign Language Studies, n77 p345-72 Win 1992
Deaf and hearing children at two grade levels (fourth and eighth) provided written texts for an analysis of text structure and quality. Deaf writers used as many cohesive devices as hearing writers but used fewer different lexical terms per device. The deaf children's texts are discussed in terms of possible language transference.
