OVERVIEW & EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES:
ASL SEMANTICS: Precision of Expression in ASL
Semantics is defined as the study of meanings expressed by the elements of a language or a combination of the elements. A con-
cept expressed in an ASL sign often cannot be conveyed by a single all-purpose English word. Likewise, English words and phras-
es may have variations in meaning, which require translations using different ASL signs. This workshop helps students advance their
skills in translating from ASL to English and from English to ASL.
ENGLISh IDIOMS: PSST...how Do You Interpret That.
Fire up your creativity and learn how to interpret idioms in American Sign Language! This workshop will guide participants in
