    He is not a complete deaf.

    What do you call a person who cannot hear properly? He is not completly deaf. He hears but one needs to speak loudly for him to hear that person.

    Re: He is not a complete deaf.

    In your post, you correctly used "He is not completely deaf" (although you misspelt "completely"). However, in your title you incorrectly used "He is not a complete deaf". Note that "deaf" is not a noun, it's an adjective, so your title is impossible.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
