Akin to the questions of perception and identity, a second theme pervasive in this collection, is the impact of bilingualism in deaf communities. Peter C. Hauser offers a study of an American child proficient in both American Sign Language (ASL) and Cued English while Annica Detthow analyzes "transliteration" between Spoken Swedish and Swedish Sign Language. Like its predecessors, this sixth volume of the Sociolinguistics series distinguishes itself by the depth and diversity of its research, making it a welcome addition to any scholar's library.
