Sample text

She fell deeply in love with her husband. She lived but for him, thought only of pleasing him, and Page 9 not regretting the pleasures that she had sacrificed at her age, she hoped that her whole existence might pass in this solitude, which daily became more precious to her. The solitude, however, was not absolute. Occasional visits to the town and the regular calls of a select circle of friends, from time to time, diverted them. The chevalier was pleased to frequently see his wife's parents, so that it almost seemed to her as if she was still under the paternal roof.

This is not the first instance of linguistic oppression. As the psychologist Ursula Belugi pointed out, there were at least two previous known instances in human history: the suppression of the teaching of French in Prussian-occupied Alsace after the Franco-Prussian war, and of the teaching of Polish in Prussian-occupied western Poland during the same period. Let us say, however, that the rage which the Alsatians and Poles had then felt can hardly surpass the intensity of the feelings of the deaf about their own sign language, since to them it is also their lifeline toward self-fulfillment, and without it life to them is a living death.
