Winkshop - Making the English Tangible in ASL

Communication Services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Inc.

Midstate Committee of NCRID

University of North Carolina at Greensboro: Interpreter Preparation Program

Course Description:

 Open to the community and all working interpreters, regardless of certification.

Have you ever received feedback that you should "show" more, and "tell" less? This is excellent advice, but a bit hard to follow without further explanation. Picture a train...What do you see? Now ask a friend to picture a train and have them explain or draw what they first saw. Is it the same image you had? Most likely not. Everyone, regardless of culture and language, pictures things diferently in their heads. These variations in mental "seeing," or construal, help account for the wide rande of communication and language use we encounter every day.

This workshop applies visual-spatial techniques in order to better produce visual language. ASL has more than simple lexical signs and fingerspelling, which make up the “tell” options. Some of the “show” options come in the form of depiction. Depiction is a topic that has made quite a stir among researchers in ASL linguistics. It includes depicting verbs, surrogation, partitioning, blending, affect, mouth morphemes, other non-manual signals, and networking. Using these aspects of ASL, interpreters can create clear and powerful ASL messages that create a bridge between consumers.

When we see how Deaf people developed ASL, and how it has evolved into the complex language it is today, we see much of that was due to their subjective knowledge and experiences. This workshop encourages participants to think about the objects and required actions in a sentence in order to formulate an ASL concept based on their experiential views of the world, and do so without imposing their own biases. This framework takes English and makes it tangible in ASL. *Presented in ASL*
