Deaf Culture:
Deaf People

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 from generation.

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".
