Exploration quantitative et qualitative du lexique d’enfants sourds implantés ou appareillés d’âge élémentaire

Abstract : The quantitative deficiency of hearing impaired children’s lexicon is largely documented, but its qualitative aspect remains unexplored. Our study evaluates the qualitative and quantitative vocabulary of 15 deaf children. These deaf children have implants or hearing aids to deal with hearing disabilities that range from medium-to-profound deafness. The test scoring of these children in naming, object naming, categorization, semantic relationship and lexical-morphological decision-making tasks was compared to the results of 18 hearing children. The two groups were matched by age, gender, education level and family language environment. Results confirm quantitative lexical delay in deaf children, as well as their poorer abilities to categorize or associate semantical relationships. Furthermore, the children’s lexical abilities appear to correlate highly with their performances in morphology and reading, which have been shown to be impaired in previous research as well as in this study.
