    Michael Rodda, Carl Grove

    "...a useful sourcebook for students as well as professionals...highly recommended as well-written and thoroughly researched."
    American Scientist

    "...Rodda and Grove clearly want to see Sign Language (ASL) accepted as part of the educational, psychological, and cultural world of deaf adults, without demeaning the importance of speech and hearing in the communication process. This highly readable and informative book will undoubtedly help move the field in that direction, and I highly recommend it to the specialist and non- specialist alike."
