Title:Sociolinguistic Profiles of Twenty-four Deaf Communities in the Americas
Abstract:In this report, we describe the deaf people and sign languages in 24 different locations, and contextualize this information within the broader social context of each place. The following countries, departments, collectivities, territories, and provinces are discussed: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, The Bahamas, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Falkland Islands, French Guiana, Greenland, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Martinique, Montserrat, Netherlands Antilles, Quebec, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, Suriname, Turks and Caicos Islands, and the United States Virgin Islands. Nine sign languages are found to be present in these locations, including American Sign Language, British Sign Language, Danish Sign Language, Sign Language of the Netherlands (also called Dutch Sign Language), French Sign Language, Guyanese Sign Language (also called Guyanan or Guyana Sign Language), Kajana Sign Language, Quebec Sign Language, and Surinamese Sign Language (also called Suriname Sign Language).
