From Sign to Word: Considering Modality Constraints in ASL/English Bilingual Education.
Singleton, Jenny L.; Supalla, Samuel; Litchfield, Sharon; Schley, Sara
Topics in Language Disorders, v18 n4 p16-29 Aug 1998
Critically examines the traditional notion of American Sign Language/English bilingualism. This model is contrasted with the "ASL/English as a spoken language" bilingual model in which the modality constraints facing the deaf child are presented as the fundamental issue for ASL/English bilingualism. Empirical and applied research supporting the modality constrained bilingual model is offered. (Author/DB)
