comment “Blind” is to “sighted” as “Deaf” is to..?
+1: "hearing" is the word Deaf people use to refer to people who are not deaf.

@zzzzBov: But people who are culturally Deaf usually prefer to identify as Deaf instead of "hearing impaired." It really depends on the audience, but it can be important to distinguish between people who are medically deaf versus those who consider themselves deaf. Generally, people who identify as "hearing impaired" tend to be more orally-oriented and are less likely to be using sign language in the first place.
