An open letter in ASL to notify President Barack Obama of his name sign which was given by the Deaf community in USA. 

Disclaimer: This is a final project for a course I took last Fall, there are several name signs suggested for Obama-- yet for this video, I chose just one name sign that I feel more comfortable and at ease to sign specifically for this video project.

What's Your Sign For Pizza? What's Your Sign For Pizza?

Sign-variation in American Sign Language

It's Not What You Sign, It's How You Sign It

It’s Not What You Sign, It’s How You Sign It is framed within politeness theory, an apt model to determine various interpretations of what speakers or signers mean in respect to the form of that which they say or sign. The variations reveal how linguistic and cultural differences intersect in ways that are often misinterpreted or overlooked in cross-cultural communication. To clarify these cross-linguistic differences, this volume explores two primary types of politeness and the linguistic strategies used by English speakers and ASL signers to express politeness concerns in face-to-face interaction. Hoza’s final analysis leads to a better understanding of the rich complexity of the linguistic choices of these language groups.

Classifiers

Perspectives On Classifier Constructions In Sign Languages Perspectives On Classifier Constructions (2003)

Classifier constructions are universal to sign languages and exhibit unique properties that arise from the nature of the visual-gestural modality. The major goals are to bring to light critical issues related to the study of classifier constructions and to present state-of-the-art linguistic and psycholinguistic analyses of these constructions. It is hoped that by doing so, more researchers will be inspired to investigate the nature of classifier constructions across signed languages and further explore the unique aspects of these forms.

Classifier Predicates In ASL Classifier Predicates in ASL (2007)

A scholarly work: The authors show that body part classifiers (BPCL) have morpheme specification.  They further discuss contrasting morphology and phonology and a detailed syntax analysis.

Classifiers and Prosody Classifiers and Prosody (2007)

A scholarly work: The authors analyze the phonological and prosodic properties of two-handed classifiers.  They examine the restrictions these forms place on handshape choice, and then look at their prosodic and morpho-syntactic structures by examining the interaction between the relations of the two hands and other prosodic cues, such as eye blinks.


 

Deaf Culture

Inside Deaf Culture Inside Deaf Culture

The authors (who also wrote Deaf in America) reveal historical events and forces that have shaped the ways that Deaf people define themselves today. Inside Deaf Culture relates Deaf people's search for a voice of their own, and their proud self-discovery and self-description as a flourishing culture.

A Journey Into the Deaf World A Journey Into the Deaf-World

  VITAL FOR PROFESSIONALS 

Three distinguished scholars of Deaf culture—one hearing, one deaf, and one CoDA (child of deaf adults)—offer clear, penetrating insights into the existence and makeup of the deaf world, the community whose natural language—ASL in the U.S.—is manual and visual. Bringing the latest social and cultural findings and theories into sharp focus, the authors take us on a fascinating journey to discover what deaf culture is; the benefits of signed language and deaf culture for deaf children and hearing people; how deaf children are now educated and how they could be; how deaf people integrate into the larger society; the nature of ASL; how technology helps (and hurts) deaf people. Combining thought-provoking intellectual perspectives with enlightening first-hand accounts of life in the deaf world, this landmark volume is vital for professionals working in fields involving deaf people and for those with an interest in deaf studies.

For Hearing People Only For Hearing People Only   Workbook also available.

  VERY GOOD FOR BEGINNERS!

HPO is written for people who have questions about Deaf culture, sign language, and Deaf life in general, and need a quick answer.

Reading Between the Signs Reading Between the Signs  (2nd Edition)
(2006) by Anna Mindess, Thomas K. Holcomb, Daniel Langholtz

  A MUST-HAVE FOR TERPS

Mindess, herself a veteran interpreter, introduces the main concepts of intercultural communication in the first half of her work, drawing on examples from anthropology, linguistics, and related fields. She highlights differences between hearing culture and deaf culture in America that can compromise clarity in translation situations. Finally, Mindess explores the responsibilities of translators and their primary role as mediators, recognizing that American Sign Language (ASL) translators raised outside deaf culture must learn its nuances to maintain professional quality. In comparison, Melanie Metzger's more research-oriented Sign Language Interpreting: Deconstructing the Myth of Neutrality (Gallaudet Univ., 1999) reveals how interpreters influence a translation interaction. Although less academic in nature, Mindess's book is a excelleent resource for the interpreter.

Audism Unveiled Audism Unveiled   (DVD)

It is also beneficial to educate yourself, by seeing the many faces of audism, and the deep emotional scars resulting from this discrimination.

Bonus materials include director's comments from Ben Bahan and H-Dirsken Bauman, and additional scenes.

Teachers: This film is a wonderful tool for beginning ASL students, as an introduction to a side of Deaf culture that cannot be found in any textbook.

Through Deaf Eyes: A Photo History Through Deaf Eyes: A Photographic History of an American Community

Photographs, quotes, and stories from the public television documentary have been assembled in this book of stunning beauty. More than 200 full-color photographs feature poignant images that depict the story of Deaf America offering readers the opportunity to learn about the nation’s broader history. Photographs reveal the character of Deaf people in school settings, the workplace, during wartime, and using their cultural language of sign. For both deaf and hearing readers, the Deaf community portrayed, offers a unique and fascinating perspective on the value of human difference.

A Phone Of Our Own A Phone Of Our Own - The Deaf Insurrection Against Ma Bell

H.G. Lang - In 1964, of the more than 85 million telephones in the United States and Canada, less than one percent were used regularly by deaf people. In that same year, three enterprising deaf men, Robert H. Weitbrecht, James C. Marsters, and Andrew Saks, started the process that led to deaf people around the world possessing an affordable phone system that they could use. This book tells how these three men collaborated to solve the technical difficulties of developing a coupling device for TTYs that would translate sounds into discernible letters. An entertaining engrossing story of how Deaf people fought and won, and changed the world for the better for deaf people everywhere.

Deaf Empowerment Deaf Empowerment

A lucid and engrossing examination of the Deaf social movement in America from mid 19th to late 20th centuries. The author traces how Deaf advocates adopted tactics from the civil and women's rights movement as well as other social revolutions to achieve communication goals with the dominant hearing society.

Deaf In America Deaf In America

A Place Of Their Own

A concise, thorough history of the American Deaf Community, its schools, and struggles to maintain a cohesive community.

Prosodic Markers and Utterance Boundaries (Interpreters) Prosodic Markers and Utterance Boundaries in American Sign Language Interpretation (Studies in Interpretation Series, Vol. 5)
(June 2009) by Brenda Nicodemus

In interpreting, professionals must be able to convey to their clients the rhythm, stress, and length of phrases used by the communicating parties to indicate their respective emotional states. Such subtleties, which can signal sarcasm and irony or whether a statement is a question or a command, are defined in linguistics as prosody. Brenda Nicodemus’s new volume, the fifth in the Studies in Interpretation series, discusses the prosodic features of spoken and signed languages, and reports the findings of her groundbreaking research on prosodic markers in ASL interpretation.

Learning To See Learning To See
       (1997) by Phyllis Wilcox, Sherman Wilcox

This second edition of the work remains by far the best work of its type. It is cogent, well written, and provides a useful and important foundation for those interested in teaching ASL. It should also be of interest to those not familiar with the growing literature on ASL and the Deaf community, as well as for other foreign language educators.

It's Not What You Sign, It's How You Sign It

It’s Not What You Sign, It’s How You Sign It is framed within politeness theory, an apt model to determine various interpretations of what speakers or signers mean in respect to the form of that which they say or sign. The variations reveal how linguistic and cultural differences intersect in ways that are often misinterpreted or overlooked in cross-cultural communication. To clarify these cross-linguistic differences, this volume explores two primary types of politeness and the linguistic strategies used by English speakers and ASL signers to express politeness concerns in face-to-face interaction.

C-Print: A Notetaking System C-print: A Notetaking System

C-PrintTM is a computer-aided speech-to-print transcription system developed at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) as a support service option for some deaf and hard-of-hearing students in mainstream educational environments. Northeast Technical Assistance Center (NETAC) serves postsecondary institutions to improve educational access and enhance postsecondary education opportunities for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.

TRS Handbook Telecommunication Relay Service (TRS) Handbook

Telecommunication Relay Services (TRS) allow anyone who is hearing or speech impaired to communicate with anyone in the world.  Technophobia, unawareness, and fear of the unknown have prevented many from using TRS and taking full advantage of the telephone's unparalleled convenience. Until now. This easy-to-understand handbook will help all of us to communicate with one another!

What you may not know about TRS:

* You get absolute confidentiality, by law. Even communication concerning criminal enterprises is protected.

* The Communications Assistant (CA) is carefully trained to be not only proficient in using the necessary equipment, but also in facilitating a smooth interaction between parties.

* The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 mandates that telephone companies provide this service to those who need it.

Surgical Consent Surgical Consent

The publisher of this book says the rate of implantation is 80% to 90% of all deaf children, some as young as five months old.  The collection features essays by Paddy Ladd, Harlan Lane, Karen Lloyd, Eithne Mills, Paal Richard Peterson, and Michael Uniacke. These worldwide renowned ethicists, educators, and Deaf leaders express their diverse perspectives on the bioethics of childhood cochlear implantation, with perspectives on human rights, medical and social ethics, psychology, education, globalization, identity, life pathways, democracy, media, law, and biotechnology. These views contrast sharply with the medical perspective of deafness overwhelmingly promoted through the media and by the cochlear implantation industry. Surgical Consent begins and ends with the voices of Deaf people. Their articulate and, at times, raw insights clearly delineate the issues of power, positioning, and minority-majority group relations that are inherent in the dominant hearing culture’s understanding of diversity and globalization.

Job Accomodations "On the Job With Hearing Loss" On the Job With Hearing Loss

This book provides a comprehensive look at the hidden challenges of hearing loss and practical solutions that can overcome the barriers. Author Becky Morris, published author, national and international conference presenter and recognized leader in ALDs in the hearing healthcare and Vocational Rehabilitation arena, addresses issues for people at every experience level.

Includes:
- 10 steps of successful accommodations 
- 17 occupational reports perfect for newer counselors or employment specialists
- Technology training in telephones, meetings and a cross reference of technology mentioned in the occupational reports.
