Ed Interpreters eLearning Series: Language Clarity Techniques in Discourse - Looking at Language Expansion Features - 009020
Speakers use several different communication techniques to help their listeners follow the logic of the discourse (conversation, teaching, etc) as well as to hone in on key points of the discussion. Like all languages, American Sign Language speakers (and interpreters) use strategies to assist with listener comprehension. In the literature, these are frequently referred to as expansion features (Lawrence, Finton, Smith, etc). The goal of the training will introduce you to the types of expansions that can be used as well as when to integrate expansions into your educational interpretations. Presenter: Kevin Williams, M.S. Faculty at Rochester Institute of Technology and RID CI/CT Originally presented January 12, 2013.
