THE SIGN LANGUAGE.
X Statement of the Points Oir Which
Two Schools Are 1Yrangliug.
During the convention of deaf mutes in
this city, clear and weighty statements aa
to the use of the sign language were made
at considerable length by President E.
Gallaudet and Professor J. B. Ilotcukiss,
of the National College for Deaf Mutes,
and by Dr. Peet. of the New York school.
Shorter but no less emphatic declarations
came from the Rev. Dr. Thomas Callaudet,
Principal Job Williams and other speakers.
All united iu approval of the si;n method.
With no thought o V:i:i!? to what has
oeensowell said by t,i tr ihe lii.rliett
authorities 111 the country, Tnt I'o'.naiH
will try to explain to those wiio are not
familiar with the bubk-et what the uiics
tion at issue really is, mid why it has made
so mucti stir among teachers of the deaf
and dumb. Disregarding the early, tenta
tive attempts at instruction, and coming
down to the time when deaf mute schools
were established ia some numbers in this
country and in Europe, we find two svs-
terns iu use that which employs signs and
the finger alphabet, and that which at
tempts to teach speech and lip readincr.
Not many years ago the former was ia
almost undisputed possession of this field
in this country. JSlore recently the other
lias become prominent, largely through
the enthusiasm of Dr. Graham Bell over
his system of visible speech. The disnntn
between the schools is really whether this
latter system shall be taught alone, signs
ueing uisregartieu, or shall bo an adjuuet
to instruction based on the sign method,
the latter being used by all ia the school.
and instruction in articulation and lip
reading given to nil who show that they
proCt by it in a degree commensurate to
the time and labor required.
The American asylum, for instance, like
most schools of its class, gives instruction
based on thesign language to every scholar.
But whenever a new pupil arrives he is
also put in charge of a teacher of articula
tion. A moderate percentage, chiefly
those who have lost their hearing through
sickness, make such progress as to justify
continuance of the instruction. Those who
do not are after a time relieved of the work
Practically, then, one system reiecta and
forbids signs, which are a natural means
or communication between deaf mutes;
the other uses and develops this natural
language, unites It with the use of the fin
ger alphabet and adds instruction in artic
ulation lor all who can profit by it.
It is worth bearing in mind that Presi
dent L- Al. Gallaudet, Dr. Thomas Gallau
det and Dr. Peet grew up among deaf
muies, learned their language as readily
and perfectly as that of their own fathers,
are famili.-ir from childhood and through
mature life with the feelings, mental op
erations, limitations and capacities of deaf
mutes, aud probably are as competent to
give a linal judgment In the matter as any
uiiree uieu iu me world, t'rolessor llotch
kiss, as a highly educated man. deaf from
childhood, but possessing the power of
6peech, is another authority who sees the
question rrom a 6lightly different stand
point. All these are agreed as to the great
advantagcsoflered by the siijn language as
a means of instruction.
It is probably safe to say that few of
those who oppose it have this entire famil
iarity with it. It is a language of wonder
ful resource, rapid and capable of" precise
expression to a degree not dreamed of by
those who have not thoroughly studied it.
As to the result of the present dispute!
time will show, but there are indications
that the schools which forbid 6igns and
trust to articulation have already seen
their best days. The method which mnt
easily and ierfectly opens the mind, pro
motes general education, establishes re
lation with the outside world and facili
tates rapid and accurate intercourse under
ull conditions is the oue that must prevail.
