An Investigation of the Sign Language Community of the Deaf: Can Anyone Join?
Dolby, Kathy
ACEHI Journal, v18 n2-3 p80-92 1992
A survey of 56 deaf adults in England and Canada found that respondents perceived themselves as members of a definable deaf community. Results also indicated the importance of shared language (American or British Sign Language) and the possible community inclusion of individuals without deafness if their attitude is one of commitment to the community.
