To be sure, the article is not specific about if these dilsiz were actually deaf or not, it may as well refer to people who were vowed to be silent or who had their tongue cut off in order to work at the court. But I guess at least some of them must have been deaf.

I just read for the first time about Ottoman court deafs, or ”palace mutes” (dilsiz), who had apparently high status in the sultan's court and were so numerous that very likely they had a fully developed sign language in use.

I really need to learn more about this chapter in history!

Prof: make sure all your sources are peer reviewed, if you're not sure, ask your classmates.

Me: so ask my peers?

Prof: yes

"Varför talar vi engelska? Det är onödigt och störande." :blobcatgiggle:

Kokeilin myös, miltä suomennos näyttää, mutta ainakaan demopalvelimella en saanut käyttöliittymän kieltä vaihdettua (asetus löytyy, mutta se ei tee mitään).

Olen suomentanut suurimman osan, mutta työ on vielä vähän kesken. Yritän tässä syksyn mittaan saada suomennettua Mobilizonin kokonaan.

Hei !

Ehkä jo huomasittekin, että on julkaistu. Voisi varmaan olla hyvä jossain vaiheessa saada suomalaisille tapahtumille ja ryhmille tarkoitettu mobilizon-palvelin. Minua asia kiinnostaa etenkin kulttuurialan kannalta, ja varmasti aktivistiskene (ehkä useampikin ryhmä) on myös kiinnostunut.

Mites tätä kannattais lähteä konkretisoimaan?
