Description

Talking Hands introduces a little-known branch of cognitive science: the linguistic, psychological and neurological study of sign language. "In recent years, research in these areas has been vital in shedding new light on the ways in which all language works in the human mind." In the book, a group of linguists study and analyze the "signing village" of Al-Sayyid, a remote Bedouin community in Israel that, because of isolation and intermarriage, has a rate of deafness 40 times that of the general population.
