Title: Sign it in; sign it out, up and down the Caribbean: Preparing the deaf for CSME
Author: Bobb-Alleyne-Dann, Joan
Abstract: This study compared signs for words that are distinctly Caribbean, and investigated the perspectives of educators of the Deaf on the differences in signs among the islands. The findings indicate that the limits that characterize individual island signs preclude fluent communication among the Deaf from different islands. I propose that signs for words that are distinctly Caribbean need to be standardized and documented to facilitate effective communication and participation in the Caribbean Single Market and Economy
