Language Codes and Sense-Making among Deaf Schoolchildren.
Maxwell, Madeline M.; Doyle, Jeanne
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v1 n2 p122-36 Spr 1996
As most deaf individuals experience two languages (American Sign Language, English) and three modalities (sign, speech, print), this article describes code variations and adaptations in particular situations at a school for the deaf. Most language was mixed in both code and mode; such mixing was seen to be a strategy which uniquely adapts linguistic resources to communication needs. (DB)
