There will be various resources available that further explain in-depth various aspects of the deaf culture as well as language usage. Most deaf and hard of hearing individuals are happy to explain their preferred communication style as well as their unique backgrounds. The deaf culture is ethnocentric in nature, centered around sign language and relationships among one another. Unlike other cultures, the Deaf culture is not associated with any native land but, rather it is a global culture. Although by some, deafness maybe viewed as a disability, the Deaf-World sees itself as a language minority. Throughout the years, many accomplishments have been achieved by deaf people. To name the most famous, Ludwig van Beethoven and Thomas Alva Edison were both deaf and contributed great works to culture.
