Adults may also have difficulty with pragmatics, for example, as a result of a brain injury or stroke. It is now recognised that sign languages exist throughout the world, wherever groups of deaf people and children come together, and each has its own unique vocabulary and rules, although being visual spatial languages, they have a great deal in common with each other - more in common with each other than with spoken languages.

English language learning and practice has never been easier and funnier. Randolph Valentine takes in his Nishnaabemwin Reference Grammar: Mary was able to get the door open. American Sign Language is not a visual version of the English language and features very different structure and complex grammar. In rare cases, such as "energi" (energy), the "g" is pronounced roughly like "sj" (see below). (**) is pronounced as a soft "ch" before /e/, /i/, /y/, /ä/, /ö/, and otherwise as an English "k". (*) A few exceptions exist for loan-words; most noticably perhaps "kö" (queue) and "kör" (choir), where a hard K sound is used. is pronounced almost as in English, except that when the sound is made (with the tip of the tongue touching the upper palate) the tongue should not be half-curled back, as in English, but straight. (**) is a very rare letter in Swedish since the spelling reform about a century ago.
