27 Signed English Signed English
Quick Review Signed English Noun a form of communication employing the signs of American Sign Language but using English  grammar  in place of ASL syntax and using invented forms for English grammatical elements such as of, to, the, and -ing,  where no ASL sign exists.

In-depth explanation

29 PSE Quick Review Pidgin Signed English (PSE) Pidgin Signed English (PSE) is a combination of American Sign Language (ASL) and English. ASL is a distinct language, and (like most other languages) it does not map perfectly to English. There is no equivalent for many specific words and the syntax is completely different. Culturally Deaf people, signing with each other, usually use ASL, but many people, (frequently deaf or hard of hearing) who learn to sign later in life, after hearing and using spoken English, do not sign strictly in ASL. Instead, they use a mixture of ASL and English that is known as PSE. With PSE, someone might sign most of the English words of a sentence and use approximately the English syntax. PSE is not Signed Exact English (SEE), which uses signs for exact English words (even signs that don't exist in ASL) and exact English word order. SEE is most frequently used in educational settings, where the theory is it will help the children learn English. PSE is most frequently used by people whose primary language is spoken English. Culturally Deaf people are usually very adept at understanding and using this blend of English and ASL when they sign with someone who doesn't strictly use ASL. 

30 What is Contact Variety Sign?
Quick Review What is Contact Variety Sign? ASL signs in English word order. English signs in ASL word order. English signs in English word order but in ASL thought order. Conceptual correct signs in English order. Literal signs but in ASL order. Initialized signs in ASL order. Half English and half ASL signs.

31 Day 3 LAB for on-line Unit 8 Receptive Assessment

32 Day 3 Translating Pledge to ASL

33 Translating the Pledge of Allegiance
Into ASL

34 What is the purpose? Is it for a student in class and they are signing along at the same speed everyone is saying it? Is it to dissect the meaning (during Deaf Ed class) to help student understand what and why he is saying it?

35 We are going to learn ASL conceptually accurate signs,
with ASL use of space but we will keep the Pledge in English thought order. This will allow a Deaf student to sign along with the morning Pledge and keep up with his hearing classmates.

59 Cued Speech A Brief Overview


61 What is Cued Speech Cued Speech is a mode of communication based on the phonemes and properties of traditionally spoken languages. Cueing allows users who are deaf or hard of hearing or who have language / communication disorders to access the basic, fundamental properties of spoken languages through the use of vision. 

62 History Cued Speech was invented in 1966 by Dr. R. Orin Cornett at Gallaudet College, Washington D.C.  After discovering that children with prelingual and profound hearing impairments typically have poor reading comprehension, he developed the system with the aim of improving the reading abilities of such children through better comprehension of the phonemes of English. As many sounds look identical on the lips (such as /p/ and /b/), the hand signals introduce a visual contrast in place of the formerly acoustic contrast. Cued Speech may also help people hearing incomplete or distorted sound — according to the National Cued Speech Association at, "cochlear implants and Cued Speech are powerful partners".

63 History Since Cued Speech is based on making sounds visible to the hearing impaired, Cued Speech is not limited to use in English speaking nations. Because of the demand for use in other languages/countries, by 1994 Dr. Cornett had adapted cueing to 25 other languages and dialects.  Originally designed to represent American English, the system was adapted to French in 1977. As of 2005, Cued Speech has been adapted to approximately 60 languages and dialects, including six dialects of English. For tonal languages such as Thai, the tone is indicated by inclination and movement of the hand. For English, Cued speech uses eight different hand shapes and four different positions around the mouth.

64 Cued Speech and Literacy
Cued Speech is based on the hypothesis that if all the sounds in the spoken language looked clearly different from each other on the lips of the speaker, those hearing impaired would learn a language in much the same way as a hearing person, but through vision rather than audition. Cued Speech was developed with the intent of improving literacy rates among children. Even today, one argument made by advocates of Cued Speech for English users is that literacy rates for reading English are significantly lower in those who learn American Sign Language than those who learn Cued Speech. This difference typically is attributed to ASL being a distinct language from English, with its own syntax and lexical patterns,  whereas Cued Speech is not a language but simply a method of making spoken sounds visible.
