This graduate-level course is designed for interpreters who already have experience in interpreting from ASL to English and from English-based signing into English and who can usually understand most of the message but frequently miss the fingerspelled word on the first try. Experiences will be provided that are designed to improve fingerspelled word recognition on the first try. Fingerspelled words will be studied in context and in isolation. This course also has a theoretical component in that the underlying cognitive processes associated with fingerspelled word recognition will be explained and discussed. The theoretical aspects form the basis for the practical applications.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
