For centuries, many people have misread the definitions of oral deaf and oralist/oralism.
Oralism is the method of teaching deaf students to learn how to speak and listen and is banning sign language.
Oralist is the person who believes in banning sign language in the education system and taking away deaf students’ real identity.
Oral deaf is the person who has been produced by the oralism. Some of the oral deaf stay in non-signed language world after they graduate. Some join the Deaf world and embrace Deaf culture and signed languages.
So is oral deaf oralist?
