...Deaf Community Deaf community Deaf community is made up of those hard of hearing and deaf persons who have over the years shared common experiences, common languages and a common manner of working together with one another, and with hearing people. Several people think that loss of hearing as a disability, but the amazing thing is that a lot of deaf people do not take it that way. Deaf people in the US are a subculture of linguistics. They thus categorize themselves as Deaf, an ethnic distinctiveness, and not necessarily a physical situation. Individuals who categorize themselves as being deaf belong to a unique and proud sub cultural grouping referred to as the Deaf community. They usually... Essay:...

...Deaf People while Signing to Them The experiences learned while communicating with people whose communication styles differ are diverse. It is after meeting several friends in the Deaf Linx chatroom that I learned of the challenges that might occur while engaging into communication with people. For example, the chatting experience that occurred in the initial stages of the conversation influenced me to understand that my recipients were unable to understand the meanings bound in the many signs I used. The situation influenced the understanding that the signing languages I used could be acceptable by other people with the ability to hear, but could deliver controversial information... to the...

At some point in life, the oppressed and neglected people in the society declare they have had enough of the stereotyping and stigmatization (Orlans, 1989, P.12, C.1, L.35).
