Variation in meaning or context.

Language deprivation is not uncommon in deaf children who are implanted with cochlear implants (which are not a cure) and are not provided a natural language through eye. As a result, the child is deprived of both languages in either modalities (signing or speech). Many parents are not aware of the bilingual approach.
