Full-text available
Few studies have been published on practical or theoretical issues in signed language testing for adult second language (L2) or foreign language learners— let alone on scoring (e.g., Caccamise & Samar, 2009; Haug, 2017). One possible reason is the early stage of this field of research and its application. Another reason might be that institutions o...
Chapter
Full-text available
Hearing adult learners of sign languages face specific challenges in that they need to acquire a new language (L2) in a new modality (M2). Most sign languages are not standardized and are not fully described (e.g., no reference grammar is yet available), and it is hard to find fluent L1 users. These factors contribute to the complexity of sign lang...

This paper focuses on issues related to sign language policies in Higher Educational Institutes (HEIs) in Europe. Drawing on the analytical framework proposed by Darquennes/Du Plessis/Soler (2020, i. e. this volume), which serves to address HEI language planning issues at macro, meso and micro levels, we carry out an inventory of how these issues p...

Hearing and deaf children of deaf parents grow up to be bilinguals, usually. A short description is provided about language acquisition in different situations.
Chapter
The hearing children of Deaf parents grow up in two cultures with two languages. They are similar to other bilingual, bicultural children in many ways but are special also. They can be in conflict between two worlds and often carry an extra burden of responsibility in functioning as a bridge between the two. As long as the child is given enough exp...

Veel horende kinderen van dove ouders (koda’s) worden opgevoed met een gesproken en een gebarentaal. Kinderen die met twee gesproken talen opgevoed worden mengen deze soms (code-switchen). Dit doen koda’s ook, maar dan op een speciale manier, het is immers mogelijk om tegelijkertijd een woord uit te spreken en een gebaar te maken. Deze vorm van taa...

Introduction The CEFR offers a framework for language teaching, learning and assessment for L2 learners. Importantly, the CEFR draws on a learner’s communicative language competence rather than linguistic competence (e.g. vocabulary, grammar). As such, the implementation of the CEFR in our four years bachelor program Teacher of Sign Language of the...

In all three children, we find an increase in code-blending over the age range studied (see Figure 6). The growth curve has an interesting pattern in that around age 3;0, the increase seems to stop or slow down. We need to seek an explanation for this. Dutch and Dutch-based codeblends decrease after the age 3;0 but remain quite important, as is sho...

In this paper we discuss the mixed language input of four deaf mothers and the mixed output of their three deaf and three hearing children. Taking a strict definition of code-mixing (as defined by Muysken 2000) we find that the deaf mothers mainly use a form of code-mixing, or mixed code-blending, called congruent lexicalization, which results in a...

In this article, we discuss the mixed input offered by four profoundly deaf mothers and the mixed output of their deaf and hearing children.

Sign Language of the Netherlands (SLN) is considered to be the native language of many prelingually deaf people in the Netherlands.
