This chapter focuses on the concept of working memory and how it relates to visual language processing in deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals. It discusses modality-free and modality-specific aspects of signed and spoken language processing from a variety of behavioral and neuroscience data. The chapter concludes by addressing some abstract working memory processes that constitute general features across language modality and modes of speech understanding
