This test was developed within the framework of a research project that investigates the effects of age regarding the acquisition of American Sign Language (ASL) with regard to its grammatical processing (Boudreault, 1999; Boudreault & Mayberry, 2000). Thirty deaf subjects, aged 18 to 84 with ASL as their primary language, participated in the study. The subjects were divided into three groups depending on their age of first contact with ASL. The groups were named (1) ‘native’, deaf people where one or both parents used ASL, (2) deaf people who learned ASL in the school, form age four to seven, and (3) late learners, who started to learn ASL between age eight and thirteen.
