Adaptation du CECR pour la LSF : principes et pistes pour une évaluation

Abstract : The approach towards deafness with regard to the right to diversity, which is symbolised by the officially recognised use of sign languages - Langue des Signes Française (French Sign Language), or LSF in the case of France - raises high stakes for deaf signers, a minority linguistic community. The members of this community communicate by means of a visuospatial gestural language, whilst living in a predominantly hearing society. This dissertation, after presenting the framework of bilingualism and biculturalism for deaf signers, describes the fundamental principles of the LSF and adapts them to the CEFR, Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, which is the primary reference at a European level concerning the teaching, learning and evaluation of European languages, as well as sign languages. Based on CEFR texts and theoretical publications, our work has consisted in adapting the "Sign Languages" part of the CEFR by modifying, deleting and creating the skills needing to be acquired. The consideration of the background of the LSF and its fundamental principles allows us to get as close as possible to the use of this language and at the same time generate a reflection concerning its development.
