Description

Intended as a companion volume to the author’s hugely successful ‘Signs Make Sense’, a guide to the principles of British Sign Language (BSL), “Sign in Sight” is the culmination of a Deaf and hearing working partnership. Its aim is to bridge the crucial gap between the Deaf World and the hearing society. More and more people are attending classes in BSL, anxious to learn this rich and varied language so unlike spoken English. However, no full communication with the Deaf Community is possible for hearing people without some knowledge and understanding of culture and society, which flourishes unseen, in the midst of the hearing world. “Sign in Sight” provides insights into Deaf World: it helps us comprehend Deaf people’s perceptions, values and totally different way of looking at things, based on experiences that are unique to them. It enables us to see what it means to be in a hearing society, and introduces us to some of the interests, preoccupations and social groups within the Deaf Community. The planning of the book, with juxtaposed signs and textual information, highlights the essential differences while at the same time illuminating a world of visually based communication and thought processes. For those learning BSL, “Sign in Sight” combines with ‘Signs Make Sense’ to encourage closer links between the hearing and the Deaf communities at all levels. It will also prove invaluable to families with young deaf children, enabling them to prepare their son or daughter for life in both the Deaf and hearing worlds.
