yes, I refered to BlaH's terminology, when he said:
I mean a member of the convention who is not "partially" deaf and/or blind
He meant a profoundly deaf person, yes, but when it comes to the Deaf community, Deaf people are deaf. Partially Deaf or Profoundly Deaf.
Partially deaf, as in being a member of the deaf community, or hard of hearing as in not being a member of the deaf community? I know, splitting hairs here, but we make that distinction in the Deaf community, and hard of hearing people do, in their circles as well. (Simply check one of many FB groups.)
