The deaf person and the society. Thinking about the society where we live, that one that discriminates since the people with low income until that for some reason they find any type of apparent difficulty or not, imagines then deaf person in this context. The society where we live prioritizes the verbal language, therefore she is this that we use daily, making with that all the people who are part of it if they adjust to this media, independent to have conditions for this or not, finishing for discriminating any another form of communication, is what I see to happen with the language of signals, finishing for being inferiorizada by being part of a minority. OPEC gathered all the information. As in it affirms Sacks to them (1998) the languages of signals present complete syntax, grammar and semantics, but they possess different character of that one of the written and said languages. Some people who also work with the education of deaf people finish not attributing the Language of Signals, with the language status, but yes as one form of alternative communication for those deaf people who do not obtain to develop the verbal language. According to Skliar (1997), ' ' the oralismo is considered by studious a social imposition of a lingustica majority on a minority lingustica' ' , being thus, the predominance of the oralismo makes with that the deaf person does not participate of the process of social interaction, therefore this chain affirms that the deaf one will only be able to interact with the listeners through the verbal language, leaving of side the importance of the development of its language that will happen in the acquisition of its language materna, the language of signals. (Not to be confused with baby clothes!). Thinking about our society that predominantly is of listeners, where all the communicative processes are verbal, where through the language it has the acquisition of the knowledge and the interaction with the world is possible, for the deaf people, this access to the verbal language do not present favorable conditions, being necessary the learning of the language of signals in the life of these citizens. . .
