Języki migowe w Finlandii

Katarzyna Wojan


The article is an outline of the essence of sign languages, which are native, multidimensional visual-spatial systems, used to communicate without the participation of the hearing organ, fully equivalent to spoken (phonic) languages. The author briefly discusses the sociolinguistic aspects of sign languages functioning in Finland (the Swedish Finnish sign language and the Finnish sign language) and presents the exemplary Finnish language policy targeted at the Deaf community in Finland, who, having their own culture and identity, constitute a social minority.
