This workshop will address discourse mapping in ASL with two primary goals:
• to increase interpreter comprehension of ASL texts
• to improve interpreter understanding of discourse structure in ASL for application to their interpreting work.
This workshop will include activities such as analyzing chunks of information in ASL, working from ASL into English and from English to ASL. As interpreters become more comfortable with discourse structures in ASL, they will be more confident when rendering interpretations in both English and in ASL.
