Sociolinguistic research on contact phenomena in Deaf communities has, to date, been shaped by at least four interrelated considerations: 1) the relationship between the spoken language of the majority of the community and the sign language of the community, particularly in educational settings, 2) limited knowledge of the linguistic structure of the sign language, 3) doubts as to the status of the sign language as a "real language" and 4) application of spoken language sociolinguistic models to sign language situations.
