this language, they could share thoughts and ideas with others. The language they
used was a language without sound. It was a sign language.
How did this sign language work? The deaf were taught to make certain
movements using their hands, faces, and bodies. These movements stood for things
and ideas. People might move their forefingers across their lips. This meant, "You are
not telling the truth." They might tap their chins with three fingers. This meant "my
uncle."
The deaf were also taught to use a finger alphabet. They used their fingers to
make the letters of the alphabet. In this way, they spelled out words. Some deaf peo-
ple could spell out words at a speed of 130 words per minute.
Sign language and finger spelling are not used as much as they once were. To-
day, the deaf are taught to understand others by watching their lips. They are also
taught how to speak.
Are these statements true or false?
1. The deaf are people who are unable to see.
2. Sign language of the deaf is a way of expressing meaning through hand move-
3. Sign language and finger alphabet are no longer used by the deaf.
4. One of the ways of teaching the deaf to understand others is by watching their
hands.
5. Nowadays special teachers train the deaf to speak.
