Hearing impaired people who use sign language typically….?
A) demonstrate greater mathematical competence than people without hearing impairments
B) process language in their cerebral hemisphere
C) recognize facial expressions of emotion with their left rather than their rightcerebrall hemisphere
D) have a slightly smaller corpus callosum than people without hearing impairments
Umm…I would say A, just because that’s the one that makes the most sense to me.
How does culture impact language use?
Naturally, the initial culture to use the language (for example: the people of England, English) have advantage in using the language then the succeeding cultures to adopt the language.
I’m an English speaking Filipino. And I feel the only culture I have is Catholicism. Am I disadvantaged to an Englishman and this English World, until I abandon my culture? Or must I put up with the discrimination of my culture, and make me verbally & economically disadvantaged without impairing my integrity?
Or must I have an album about Economics and Catholicism to prove my point?
Note that album is a Latin word for white.
I don’t understand how Catholicism is your ‘culture’ or how you mean you would have to abandon it? You are not speaking Latin, like in the old days of the Mass. How does being Catholic put you at a disadvantage? Many Catholics in America are well educated in the Catholic School system. I don’t know much about England. There are some in America who don’t like Catholics, from a theological standpoint, but little out and out discrimination today.
I know England and Ireland have had disputes about religion, but I don’t know if the British discriminate against Catholics.
I’m not finding fault, but I just don’t understand what the disadvantage is.
How can I use sign language in my presentation?
I am presenting a seminar on the effects of deafness and how Australia has implemented organisations and support for the hearing impaired. I am in grade twelve and I would like to present my seminar by both speaking and signing it as there is a deaf girl in my class (and my teacher said it would get me extra marks). Can anyone help with teaching me sign language or giving me a site or organisation that could somewhat ‘translate’ my seminar into Australian sign language?
It is a lovely idea but be aware that it takes a while to learn a signed language. It is like deciding to do the presentation in Italian. Perhaps you could use some signs.
