Summary
Morgan explains that American Sign Language has distinct linguistic elements that make it different from English. She explains that people in the folk group she studies are culturally Deaf, not just clinically deaf. She lists sub-groupings of Deaf folklore, such as stories, jokes, riddles, and poetry. Morgan focuses on Personal Experience Narratives of Deaf culture, which can fulfill an educational function and reinforce cultural values. She explains than most PENs of Deaf culture involve deaf people being misunderstood or oppressed by hearing people. A video tape accompanies this project
