ARCOVERDE, Rossana Delmar de Lima. Digital technologies: a new interative space of social in the written production of the deaf. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2006, vol.26, n.69, pp. 251-267. ISSN 0101-3262. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622006000200008.
Studying the social use deaf people make of written language/Portuguese language when interacting with hearing people in a digital context is the core of this research. The digital technologies are a potentiating tool to implement increasingly wider social interactions and, their communication tools mediated by computer (e-mail, chat, forums of discussion) allow a multiplicity of linguistic-discursive dynamics that permit the use of language. In the light of the enunciative-discursive approach of Bakhtin and his Circle, we analyze situations of written production by the deaf and consider that the new technologies value verbal interaction and insert both deaf and hearing people, plurilingual interlocutors, in a new space of social interaction.
