Deaf people all over the world view themselves
as belonging to a linguistic minority with its own culture.
This Deaf community has its own language
(Sign Language) and specifically for the South African Deaf culture -
South African Sign Language (SASL). Deaf culture has its own history,
shared values, social norms, customs and technology, which are transferred
When "Deaf" is used as a noun it
is written with a capital "D" - in the same way as one
refers to "Jews" using a capital "J".
