Thanks. Got it. No plural form of 'Deaf', just 'the Deaf' or 'Deaf people' etc. Thanks all,

The word Deaf is used as both a noun and an adjective (which is never pluralized).  But I think that your best guide is to ask yourself if you have ever seen the word "deafs" used.  No one has.  So the answer is that the plural is "deaf".
