This course gives emphasis to semantics, and incorporates advanced American Sign Language (ASL) grammar and vocabulary within sophisticated discourse. Students use appropriate register, a wide range of ASL sentence types, classifiers, conditionals, relative clauses and non-manual signals to explain complex constructs, processes and situations. A variety of communicative competencies are addressed including requesting clarification and providing elaboration. Information on cultural values and attitudes as they relate to the Deaf Community is also examined.
