New Book on Coda to be published in September in Japan



A new book, titled "The Coda World: Culture of sign language and culture of speech" will be published in September, 2009.

Tomoko Shibuya, the author, wrote the book based mainly on interviews with Codas and their Deaf parents.

The daily life of Coda, who is the hybrid of "Deaf culture" and "hearing culture, is full of surprises.

Does the baby cries after the parents turn around? Because a young girl tends to stare you in the face, does she easily get misunderstood?

This book is about the daily life of the coda, which is vividly described to demonstrate the core of the culturally cross-communication.
