What is the dominant identity of the group? An important characteristic of the Deaf culture is their way of communication, known as sign language. The sign language in each group may vary, due to the fact that there are over 200 distinct sign languages in the world. In the Deaf
In fact around the same time, Geronimo Cardano taught his deaf son how to communicate using symbols, which was the start of sign language. Sign Language is a nonverbal way of communicating only using hand and face gestures to get the point across. Sign language is not universal and is different within each spoken language. It’s highly unique because it is a language with its’ own syntax and grammatical structure, meaning they don’t use certain words like “the” or “and” and that how we say “how are you?” they sign “you are how?” but the point still gets across if you understand correctly. Sign language cannot be written and as I stated before it is not universal, although sign language itself cannot be written, many people who are deaf know how to read and write with the spoken language and will communicate that way as well.

1. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF ENGLISH IN MALAYSIA The history of English in Malaysia started as early as 19th century. It began when the British Empire expanded its mission of searching gold, glory and propagating of gospel to the South East Asia including Malaysia.

In the beginning, the British Colonist communicated with the locals using English and helped by sign language as most of the people cannot speak English at that moment.
In this work, I am going to access two groups of people encountered in my daily life which are my family and my friends. When I talking to my friends, I found that we usually use many co-mixed language, for example, “得 la” this word we use it to represent okay, the word “得” is a Chinese word and “la” is an English word, most of my friends use this word. The reason behind are not because we want to act cool by using English, but we think using the formal Chinese is weird, such as answering people with “沒問題” (means okay, fine or no problem), will let the person who are listening feel strange; Besides, using co-mixed language is becoming more common in the society, so it is needed to stay close to the trend by talking co-mixed language. Other than co-mixed language, jargon always appears in our conversation too. When I am talking to my friends who are addicted to Japanese animation, their sentence always show up some jargon about Japanese anime, such as “BL” which stands for boys’ love ,“Gothloli” stands for gothic Lolita and “EVA” means an anime called “Neon Genesis Evangelion”.

Firstly, vowels that come before coronal consonants will go through a process called realization to [ɛ], [aɛ] dan [æ] (Hasrah, Aman , & A.H., 2010). For instance, tangan changes to tange [taŋæ̃], kanan changes to kane [kanæ], and bukit to buke [bukeʔ]. According to Wikipedia, coronal consonants are defined as consonants articulated with the flexible part of the tongue such as [n], [t], and [l]. Secondly, the alveolar trill [r] sound of standard Malay is omitted in most Malay dialects and replaced with other phonetics sound but Pahang dialect uses both forms (Hasrah, Aman , & A.H., 2010). The replacement with other phonetics forms is seen through either the lengthening of consonant or the schwa de-articulation (Hasrah, Aman , & A.H., 2010).
Phonetics can be divided into articulatory phonetics which studies the way the vocal organs are used to produce speech sounds, there is acoustic phonetics which studies the physical properties of speech sounds, and auditory phonetics which studies the way people perceive speech sounds.
