  1. Aphasia
    - language disorder that affects the ability to communicate.
  2. Broca’s area
    - Important for speech production; located in left inferior frontal lobe
  3. Categorical perception
    - A continuous change in one dimension is perceived as a distinct phoneme category.
  4. Chaining
    - Used in classrooms by teachers to make links between signs, words, and printed words. Used in reading instructions.
  5. Cinematographic stories
    - Live action techniques from film (zoom in/out). Animation techniques (eyes popping out/ jaw dropping).
  6. Critical (or sensitive) period
    -A period of time during an organism's development which the brain is optimally capable of acquiring a specific ability, provided that appropriate environmental stimuli are present.
  7. Cued speech
    - Mode of communication in which speech sounds are made visible through different handshapes placed at different locations of the face and upper body.
  8. Fluent aphasia
    • - AKA Wernicke’s Aphasia. This includes fluently articulated speech, word choice errors, and the production of function words and grammatical morphemes, but with errors.
    • Example: Examiner: How are you today?
    • Patient: I feel very well. My hearing, writing have been doing well. Things that I couldn’t hear from. In other words, I used to be able to work. Cigarettes I didn’t know how..Cheesterfeela, for 20 years I can write it.
  9. Grey matter
    - Cell bodies that make up the outer layer of the hemisphere (the cerebral cortex). Changes in grey matter (cortex) show learning.
  10. Joint attention (importance to sign vocabulary acquisition)
    - Children see the object while learning the sign.
  11. My Third Eye
    - deaf actors began to play with language itself (asking each  actor to produce diff sign with same handshape), 1973, first time sign was recognized as a language.
  12. Non-fluent aphasia
    • - AKA Broca’s Aphasia. This includes slow effortful speech, “telegraphic speech”, lack of function words, grammatical morphemes, mostly nouns and content words.
    • Example: Examiner: What else happened?
    • Patient GD: CAR . . . DRIVE . . . BROTHER. . . . DRIVE . . . I . . . S-T-A-D . . . . [Attempts to gesture “stand up”]
  13. Oral tradition in literature
    - The spoken retelling and preservation from one generation to next of a people's cultural history and ancestry, often by a storyteller or poet in narrative form.
  14. Phonological awareness
    - Ability to notice, think about, and manipulate speech sounds.
  15. Phonological decoding
    - Simple view of reading: word decoding-mapping print to meaning, word recognition.
  16. Phonological similarity effect
    - Printed words that are phonologically similar are confused in memory (Ex. Save/wave vs. touch/couch).
  17. Proximalization of movement in sign language
    • acquisition
    • - Movement is produced by moving joints that are closest he torso. Proximalization is an aspect of learning a novel motor skill.
  18. Referential shift
    - Errors occur because lexical signs normally do not shift referenced spending on the speaker. Pronouns are difficult because their meaning shift.
  19. Simple view of reading -
    Word decoding: mapping print to meaning; word recognition.
  20. Language Comprehension: ability to interpret words, sentence structure, and discourse.
    Both are necessary and neither alone are sufficient for skilled reading.
  21. “Stacking” error in sign acquisition
    - Using the same location for several different referents. Children often make these.d????
  22. Theory of mind
    - Refers to the ability to understand that another person can have a belief that is false. Deaf people have a difficult time with Theory of Mind if they don’t receive any language input during the critical period.
  23. Visual-spatial neglect
    - Inability to report or attend to stimuli in the left half of space. RHD (???)
  24. Wernicke’s area
    - Important for speech comprehension, near auditory cortex; left superior temporal cortex (language predominantly on left)
  25. White matter
    - In relation to Deaf brains and hearing brains, Deaf brains have less white matter in the auditory cortex.
