I didn't know there were such things. However, by where I grew up, there was something called a "Deaf Church". To me this implied that the congregation was deaf or that it catered to a deaf congregation. I was right. A hospital or clinic that treats deaf patients, however is more a "clinic for the deaf" as opposed to a "deaf clinic" which implies that the people who work there are deaf which usually is not the case.Originally Posted by NewHope
The same way that a "handicapped taxi driver" is not the same thing as a "taxi driver who specializes in helping handicapped people"
Do you see the distinction?
