The Value of the Sign-Language to the Deaf.
Gallaudet, Edward M.
American Annals of the Deaf, v142 n3 p27-30 Jul 1997
This historical article from 1887 describes the communication limitations faced by individuals with deafness, argues that sign language does not lead to clannishness among people with deafness, and discusses the benefits of sign language in allowing such individuals free and unconstrained social intercourse.
