A chi giovano le lingue segnate?

Un contributo per un possibile dibattito sul loro valore di inclusività

Davide Astori    Università degli Studi di Parma, Italia    



If much attention has been gained in recent times by sign languages (in particular in the comparison on their nature and on their main peculiar properties also towards a recognition as proper languages, as well as on the challenges they pose to some traditional notions which have been employed so far to describe linguistic phenomena), their possible value from the perspective of inclusiveness deserves at least a brief reflection: the debate on this topic could be moved, from a theoretical point of view, within the search for vehicular languages that conformed humanity’s whole cultural life (in different ways and times), to discuss the possibility that a sign language could also propose itself, among others, in the future, as auxiliary.
