L'apprentissage de la Langue des Signes Française chez les sujets entendants : quelles sont les difficultés à maîtriser une langue gestuelle ?

Abstract : French Sign Language (LSF) is an oral sign language, used by many deaf people. It was prohibited for years and most are still reluctant to give it its full-fledged language status. In fact, LSF is a spatial language, the construction of which is based on the notion of the space contrary to French spoken language which is temporal and built on the notion of time. It appears to be very different from our spoken languages as it does not have a written system. Nevertheless, it has its own grammar, vocabulary and syntax rules. We can wonder how such a language can be learnt by hearing people and what the learning difficulties are. The present work will deal first with methods pertaining to spoken language learning methods. Then, it will compare oral sign language learning methods. An "ecological" approach seems to be advocated: data collected in the field, during LSF classes, serves to analyze the difficulties expressed by the hearing adult students, main subject of our research. Finally, we will suggest some concrete and workable solutions in order to improve LSF learning.
