Aerial Spelling and NZSL: A Response to Forman (2003).
Dugdale, Pat; Kennedy, Graeme; McKee, David; McKee, Rachel
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v8 n4 p494-97 Fall 2003
This response to a previous article on aerial spelling (AS) in New Zealand Sign Language applauds the original author's effort to highlight an interesting feature of deaf communication but finds some claims questionable. These include the lack of research on AS, failure to include AS in the Dictionary of New Zealand Sign Language, and imposition of finger spelling. (Contains 10 references.) (Author/DB)
