Language Sample Video Series

The Language Sample Series is a collection of interviews with individuals who are d/Deaf or DeafBlind. This includes persons who are middle aged, senior citizens, immigrants, and refugees. In some instances, their language may have been impacted by the aging process, language deprivation, relocating to the U.S., learning ASL as a second, third, or even fourth language, and possibly a combination of several factors. We are grateful to these individuals for sharing their language and their lives. These videos provide exposure to a wide range of linguistic variation and may be used by working interpreters and interpreting educators.
