a different world, a different view

impressive collection of view points as expressed by deaf people, put together into a crescendo peaking into a statement that when deaf people of different countries and different sign languages are suddenly confronting each other, it takes about two or three days to communicate fluently, but then look at the speakers of different languages, with their dictionaries, translating computers and phonetic machines, and they still can't communicate.
