We had the honour of having Mr Dawei Ni from Austria, who majored in sign linguistics, to present a talk titled ”Sign Language: Communication and Media”at SADeaf’s AVA room on Monday, 9 Feb 2015.
The engaging two-hour talk was attended by 78 participants, including 11 from Malaysia and USA. The topics included the importance of communication in sign language from the linguistic perspective, and how using sign language in various media helps improve accessibility for Deaf people. Dawei had the audience in thrall and laughter throughout with his lively demonstrations of various linguistic concepts.
Thank you, Mr Ni, for the most enlightening presentation which was indeed an eye-opener as well as mind-opener!
