Crume, Peter K.; Lederberg, Amy; Schick, Brenda – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2021
Bilingual education programs for deaf children have long asserted that American Sign Language (ASL) is a better language of instruction English-like signing because ASL is a natural language. However, English-like signing may be a useful bridge to reading English. In the present study, we tested 32 deaf children between third and sixth grade to…

Miller, Paul; Banado-Aviran, Efrat; Hetzroni, Orit E. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2021
The aim of this study was to clarify whether fingerspelling provides a sophisticated mechanism that promotes the development of detailed orthographic knowledge for deaf individuals even in the absence of paralleling phonological knowledge. An intervention program comprised of various procedures chaining between fingerspelled sequences; their…

I define chaining as the patterned, routine ways of interlinking different linguistic and multimodal elements. The goal of this paper is to discuss the concepts of chaining, languaging and…

Sehyr, Zed Sevcikova; Giezen, Marcel R.; Emmorey, Karen – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2018
This study investigated the impact of language modality and age of acquisition on semantic fluency in American Sign Language (ASL) and English. Experiment 1 compared semantic fluency performance (e.g., name as many animals as possible in 1 min) for deaf native and early ASL signers and hearing monolingual English speakers. The results showed…

Moriarty, Erin; Kusters, Annelies – International Journal of Multilingualism, 2021
Cosmopolitanism theory was mostly developed separately from the study of multilingualism: while language is central to cosmopolitanism as a practice, only a few scholars focusing on cosmopolitanism have taken a language-centred approach. We further theorise the relationship between cosmopolitanism and translingual practice with our focus on…

Rhoades, Ellen A. – Volta Review, 2018
Advocates of bimodal bilingual (Bi-Bi) early intervention argue that both visual and auditory communication systems reflect optimal family and educational interactions for teachers, families, and their young children with hearing loss. The primary objective of this commentary is to highlight semantic variations noted in theoretical, ideological,…

Scott, Jessica A.; Hansen, Sarah G.; Lederberg, Amy R. – American Annals of the Deaf, 2019
Fingerspelling and its relationship with literacy skills among deaf and hard of hearing children who use American Sign Language is an increasingly popular research topic. However, there is limited research on whether reading interventions that systematically include fingerspelling are more effective for improving literacy skills than reading…

Friedmann, Naama; Rahamim, Einav – Journal of Research in Reading, 2014
Letter position dyslexia (LPD) is a peripheral dyslexia that causes errors of letter position within words, such as reading "cloud" as "could." In this study, we assessed the effect of various display manipulations and reading methods on the reading of 10 Hebrew readers with developmental LPD. These manipulations included…

Antia, Shirin D.; Lederberg, Amy R.; Easterbrooks, Susan; Schick, Brenda; Branum-Martin, Lee; Connor, Carol M.; Webb, Mi-Young – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
We examined the language and reading progress of 336 young DHH children in kindergarten, first and second grades. Trained assessors tested children's language, reading, and spoken and fingerspelled phonological awareness in the fall and spring of the school year. Children were divided into groups based on their auditory access and classroom…

Hamilton, Harley – Sign Language Studies, 2017
This article investigates the sequential recall of manual alphabet letters by signing deaf adolescents under two presentation conditions: fingerspelling and the listing and ordering technique (LOT) of American Sign Language. Fingerspelling presents each letter in a manner similar to the spelling of spoken words: A letter is produced and then is no…

Reynolds, Wanette – Sign Language Studies, 2018
A number of language acquisition patterns have been identified in the signing of a newly designated population of bimodal bilingual individuals--"heritage signers." This article examines subject-referent tracking forms in the ASL (American Sign Language) narratives of six elementary-school-aged, native-signing, bimodal bilinguals made at…

Nicodemus, Brenda; Swabey, Laurie; Leeson, Lorraine; Napier, Jemina; Pettita, Giulia; Taylor, Marty M. – Sign Language Studies, 2017
Little is known about the nature of fingerspelling during sign language interpretation. In this small-scale, exploratory study, we examined the fingerspelling of interpreters working in five different sign languages: American Sign Language (ASL), Australian Sign Language (Auslan), British Sign Language (BSL), Irish Sign Language (ISL), and Italian…

Stone, Adam; Petitto, Laura-Ann; Bosworth, Rain – Language Learning and Development, 2018
The infant brain may be predisposed to identify perceptually salient cues that are common to both signed and spoken languages. Recent theory based on spoken languages has advanced sonority as one of these potential language acquisition cues. Using a preferential looking paradigm with an infrared eye tracker, we explored visual attention of hearing…
