Name:Profession: Course: Date: A Summary of “Deaf Communities and Culture of Language” by Richard J. Senghas Introduction Deafness can be termed as an inability to hear things and which can be partially or totally. These symptoms which are connected to this type of a condition include mild moderate severe and profound. Therefore the persons who are mild usually have a difficult of capturing speech mainly in noisyplaces the moderate ones are usually issued with hearing aids. The ones that are have severe deafness normally depend on lip reading whenever they are engaging in conversations. When it comes to the profound deafness these people usually hear nothing at all. Thusthey depend on sign language an d lip reading at all times. According to Richard J. Senghas in his article “Deaf communities and the culture of language” there is approximately more than 6 million people worldwide who are prelingually deaf. And Sig \l 1033 (...)Conclusion With so many years of trying to prove and accept deafness as a culture it is finally starting to bear fruits. Sign language has been integrated in many aspects of the global communities and it has been accepted as another type of linguistic language. Many deaf people are starting to feel as part of the world community instead of alienating themselves as they did in the past. According to me deafness is not a disability rather it is ethnographic identity that proves to be very important and to majorly contribute to the entire globe at large. Works Cited BIBLIOGRAPHY ...
