This course is designed for Deaf and hearing interpretation students to expand their capacity to use critical ASL discourse elements in their interpretation and translation work. The course develops English to ASL translation skills by honing students’ visualization abilities. Hearing and Deaf interpreting students will learn to focus on meaning rather than form, apply the use of depiction, constructed action, depicting verbs, conversational skills and visual spatial aspects of ASL to their translations. The course will explore the difference in how English and ASL convey ideas to produce messages in different settings (business, medical, and education), in ASL discourse and Deaf culture.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
