This article discusses the deaf culture and identifies how ASL is used in the
deaf community. American Sign Language is the foundation of the deaf
community. ASL is a unique expression with visual language that includes no
talking. The author indicated that the deaf community is very different and
unique in many ways, and is more exciting than other common cultural
groups around the world, because it goes unidentified and is very discrete.
This source is very helpful for learning about deaf living and giving insight on
how different, fun but exciting the deaf culture is.

A coda is a code name for Children of deaf adults; also codas serve as interpreters for their
parents and the protection of the family. Codas play these roles because they are like the hearing

child who has the advantage of both worlds. But this sometimes causes problems because some
things others may say might be rude or disrespectful, so the children will rather not sign it to they
are parents to keep them happy and not make them upset. Also, some codas feel as if their too
young to indulge in some of the conversations that take place. There are a lot of ups and downs
being a coda because they are protection for the family, so they have to put up with a lot. But the
good thing is they have the best of both worlds, Deaf and Hearing. This source is helpful to get a
look at the family side of the deaf culture and how the children and parents communicate.

American Sign Language is the dominant language used in deaf culture in the United States and
Canada. Also, ASL is taught to the babies and it is something the deaf community glorifies. ASL
is different, a fluent hand motion with facial expression, including no talking at all. American
Sign Language is taught just like hearing parents would teach their kids how to talk and learn;
they say it over and over again until they finally get the meaning and understand the signs.
According to the author, while using ASL it is a signing space so others can clearly see the
signing. If you sign outside the space their signs can be taken for anything other than what was
meant. This source helps identify signs in ASL and how to use ASL. It is also one of the biggest
subjects to talk about when talking about the deaf community.

According to the video, fingerspelling is only used when the word does not have a specific
meaning or sign for it. As in the video above, it showed certain ways to say certain things without
fingerspelling everything out. Fingerspelling is cool, but once one starts learning the signs, sign
language will become more fun than it already is, because the expressions start to come out and
people really get into signing then.
