Abstract

With all the emphasis on 'political correctness', it is especially important to delineate the functions of naming. People with disabilities are facing issues quite similar to minority groups which have preceded them in attempting to enter 'mainstream' America. Their similarities and differences with these groups are traced as well as their own unique path (with all its implications) and some possible analytic and political solutions.
