Language and Culture Choices of Deaf Adults.
Seaman, Cheryl
CAEDHH Journal/La Revue ACESM, v25 n1-3 p52-64 1998

Although they valued their ability to converse in English, they found the lack of spontaneity in communication left them isolated in school and family interactions. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
