Abstract

The goal for this book was to include empirically-based work that is international in scope and extends knowledge of the sociolinguistic issues in deaf communities by building on previous research or breaking new ground with preliminary studies. This collection of data-based studies follows a variety of research methodologies with two recurring themes. First, the perception of deaf people and deaf communities and second, bilingualism. Specifically related to deaf-blindness, in part six, there is the study Tactile Swedish Sign Language: Turn Taking in Signed Conversations of People Who Are Deaf and Blind by Johanna Mesch.
