Lourdes and Michelle - I really admire you both for asking these questions!
It is wonderful that you want to learn about linguistics :-)

Joe wrote a little sentence in the beginning of his message explaining that
it would be a technical he did warn us!! :-)

The SW List has members from different walks of life...teachers,
researchers, Deaf people, interpreters, movement notators, students,
psychologists and linguists....very different worlds, really.....and
linguistics is particularly difficult unless you have studied it.

So most of us are the same as you...the terms are new to me too. But to
help a little....I have found three terms that Joe used in his
message...maybe someone can explain what they mean? I am not sure myself...

1. non-aural phonological decoding

2. aural phonetic content

3. grapheme-phoneme correspondence instruction


In general, Joe was discussing how Deaf signers learn to read and
write...not only English or another spoken language, but also SignWriting,
and other writing systems too....Linguists are interested in studying how
we all learn languages etc....

Hope this helps a little!

Val ;-)
