SOUZA, Regina Maria de. Sign language and majority language as work of discourse. Cad. CEDES [online]. 1998, vol.19, n.46, pp.57-67. ISSN 0101-3262.

Assuming Bakhtin's conception of language, this paper discusses the educational praxis of language teaching to deaf students. The construction of subjectivity is considered by the author as a product of dialogical and dialectic work in which the "other" has an essential co-author status. During the process of language construction, the subject takes part of a rich network of enunciations which are always historically and socially determined. My goal in this study is to focus on the linguistic co-partnership of this "other" in the reciprocal process of teaching and/or learning two different languages, Sign Language and Portuguese, by Deaf students.

Keywords : dialogia; ensino de língua; aluno surdo.
