Sign Language Ideologies in Practice

Edited by: Annelies Kusters, Mara Green, Erin Moriarty,  and Kristin Snoddon

This book focuses on how sign language ideologies influence, manifest in, and are challenged by communicative practices. Sign languages are minority languages using the visual-gestural and tactile modalities, whose affordances are very different from those of spoken languages using the auditory-oral modality.
