Language Policies in Uruguay and Uruguayan Sign Language (LSU)
Behares, Luis Ernesto; Brovetto, Claudia; Crespi, Leonardo Peluso
Sign Language Studies, v12 n4 p519-542 Sum 2012
In the first part of this article the authors consider the policies that apply to Uruguayan Sign Language (Lengua de Senas Uruguaya; hereafter LSU) and the Uruguayan Deaf community within the general framework of language policies in Uruguay. By analyzing them succinctly and as a whole, the authors then explain twenty-first-century innovations. Regarding deafness, the new measures are characterized by their treatment of deafness, sign language, and deaf movements as minority linguistic groups. (Contains 16 notes.)
