Deaf persons, in relation to their psychophysical abilities and their mindset, uses a non-verbal communication system spontaneously in which they are trained through their education, verbal communication system in which they are systematically educated through the process of education and re/habilitation, and a bilingual system of communication that implies simultaneous use of both verbal and non-verbal communication system. The aim of the study was to determine the latent space between the communication systems of the deaf and to define the factors indicating preference for the particular communication system. By the method of the main components, using the slanting latent solution (Ortoblique rotation), we evaluated the latent structure of sample patterns according to preference of certain forms of communication systems and PB criteria extracted five factors that define the latent space of preferred communication systems bdquoFactor preferring nonverbal communication systemldquo, bdquoFactor of bilingvistic orientation as preferred communication systemldquo, bdquoFactor of segregation approach as approach to communicationldquo, bdquoBilingual communication factorldquo, and bdquoFactor of positive relations to all modes of communicationldquo.
