Posted in article, Deaf by Robs on May 7, 2007

Hearing students and professors at the Austin Community College (ACC) asked me the two common questions: Is American Sign Language universal? Why did I use the capital “D”? I decided to write the article about the Deaf community to educate the hearing community at the ACC. The title is Using the Capital “D”: The Linguistic and Cultural Minority Group. The Accent is Austin Community College’s Student Newspaper. The Accent published my article on April 27, 2007.
