Bilingualism and Deafness: On Language Contact in the Bilingual Acquisition of Sign Language and Wri


The path toward sign bilingualism: a cross-disciplinary perspective(Sign) Bilingualism as an object of scientific enquiryNarrowing the focus on sign bilingualismOutline of the workSign bilingualism: sociolinguistic aspectsBilingualism as a societal phenomenonTypes of multilingualismThe status of languages in a situation of contactThe notion of community: language and group identityLanguage planning: models and measuresSign language on the agendaThe development of the deaf communitySign language transmissionDemographyDeaf activismDeaf movementEmpowermentDeafhoodSign language planningSign bilingualism and deaf educationAims and types of bilingual educationBilingual education programmes: VariablesBilingual education and academic achievementsSign bilingual educationVariation in sign bilingual education: a critical appraisalSign bilingualism: challenges and perspectives along the research- policy-practice axisSign bilingualism: a developmental linguistics perspectiveWhat is acquired: Universal and language-specific properties of grammarSentence structure: a basic designFunctional categories: sentence structure and grammatical processesHow grammar is acquired: a UG based dynamic modelThe Principles and Parameters modelAccounting for development: Structure-building hypothesisAccounting for variation: a dynamic approach to language developmentA dynamic view of changes in learner grammarsLanguage separation and interaction in bilingual language acquisitionLanguage separationBilinguals’ pooling of resourcesNarrowing the focus: bimodal bilingual language acquisition in deaf learnersAcquisition scenarios and status of the languagesHypotheses about the acquisition of the written languageHypotheses about the spoken language-written language relationAutonomy and interaction in the acquisition of the written languageAttaining the writing systemMain tasksStrategies in early word reading and writingThe role of metalinguistic awarenessHypotheses about cross-modal
