The Hidden Treasure of Black ASL

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.
People often ask if deaf people around the world sign the same language. Frequently they're surprised to learn that there are different sign languages as well as variations of these languages. These variations depend on social factors such as region age gender socioeconomic status and race. One variation Black ASL has been recognized for years as a distinct form of sign language but only through anecdotal reports. This book presents the first empirical study that begins to fill in the linguistic gaps about Black ASL.



The contributors to The Hidden Treasure of Black ASL considered three questions in their study.
  • What was the sociohistorical reality that made a separate variety of ASL possible?
  • What are the features of the variety of ASL that people call Black ASL?
  • Can the same kind of unique features that have been identified in African American English be identified in Black ASL?



This groundbreaking book go far in answering these questions while also showing the true treasures of Black ASL. [Carolyn McCaskill Ceil Lucas Robert Bayley Joseph Hill; (2011) 240 pages; hard cover]"
