11th October 2016 – new Deaf-related Polish words recognized

We are pleased to report that the "Language Observatory" at the University of Warsaw, which keeps track of the latest newcomers to the Polish lexicon, has recently cataloged the terms audyzm ("audism"), CODA, KODA, and kodak (for "child of deaf adult") and Głuchy (the capitalized form of the adjective "Deaf"). That shows that these words have now carved out a certain place for themselves in the Polish language, presumably as a reflection of growing public awareness of the underlying issues.
The definitions (in Polish) are available below:
audism,
CODA,
KODA,
kodak,
Deaf.
