Linguistics research and the deaf child : an overview
OVERVIEW AND CURRENT RESEARCH IN LINGUISTICS AND THE PSYCHOLOGY OF LANGUAGE. Thousands of contributions to linguistics and the psychology of language have been published in the past six years, but this intense activity appears to represent a process of working out, testing, elaborating, and refining the theories and new ideas of the previous decade. At least, one cannot point to any new ideas or theories to match the power of ideas such as communication theory, generative grammar, and linguistic relativity that appeared previously. Apparently, the fields of linguistics and the psychology of language are currently in a phase of consolidating the gains made in previous periods of highly creative activity. The net result for an applied field such as education in the language arts cannot be anything but positive.
