Racism, sexism, ageism, classism, and sexual prejudice are what most people are familiar with, at least many of them. But, phonocentrism is probably one of the most overlooked forms of oppression. Audism is the effect of phonocentrism.

Before exploring audism and daily signs of phonocentrism, first we need to look at the history and the origin of phonocentrism and logocentrism from ancient Greek times to understand how it builds the foundation of language and philosophy over the hundreds of years, and how it affects today's society, specifically sign language and Deaf/hearing people.

Contemplate Derrida's work, phonocentrism and logocentrism, sign language and the nature of language, and liberation of sign language, and Deafhood.
