cid:image003.gif@01D2EE7C.D76101E0Non-Manual Signals: ASL Markers (NEW!)

This workshop has a focus on non-manual signals, which are not distinctive "hand signs" yet are essential language morphemes. Interpreters will analyze and apply these grammatical markers, which involve eye and head movements, facial movements and body postures rather than the use of "signs" as distinct lexical elements. Video clips and discussion will increase interpreters' confidence in the use of non-manual markers (non-manual morphemes). (0.4 RID CEUs available)



September 15, 2017 ~ Friday 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Lexical Non-Manual Signals: The "TH" signal

This workshop has a focus on the non-manual "TH" signal. Interpreters will analyze and apply this grammatical marker in various contexts. Video clips and discussion will increase interpreters' confidence. Contexts include: character development, structures, English idioms, conjunctions, adjectives, and more. (0.4 RID CEUs available)



September 16, 2017 ~ Saturday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Medical Interpreting: How can I interpret that? (NEW!) Through many mentor sessions working with interpreters, I have kept notes to share. It's amazing to see how interpreters creatively face challenges as they translate from English to ASL. I treasure opportunities to help interpreters improve their visual thinking, which Deaf audiences appreciate. My workshop offers a myriad of ways to make interpreting more visual. We will demonstrate how classifiers may be used most effectively to communicate specific information in medical interpreting situations. Broaden your understanding of visual interpreting techniques regarding anatomical and medical interpreting. Learn more about Deaf Culture. Visual clips, visual aids, analysis, current medical terminology, and outlines will be available. This workshop will focus on surgery procedures, medical tools, birth, and causes of injury, illness and conditions. (0.8 RID CEUs)
