Tove Skutnabb-Kangas from the Roskilde University, Denmark, made a great performance at the WFD 2003 in Montreal, Canada. After four years, her speech about linguistic genocide and linguistic rights still remains in my memories.
She explains with real facts that oralism in the education of Deaf children is linguistic genocide. And she tells what kills the sign language. And much more. Read the two attachments below about these topics.
If you use Tove Skutnabb-Kangas words for your own work, please write her name on the references.
