Share A New Interpreter Practice Tool: Parsing English With A Decision Tree

Event Details

Sign language interpreters have long sought for message equivalency from English to American Sign Language (ASL). The interpreter education landscape has historically focused on language acquisition, interpreting models, and other tools to assist second language users to become familiar with ASL grammar and provide techniques to deliver message equivalency. Current methods of interpreting are sets of theoretical directions that leave the student to make unguided decisions which could create a linear, English-based signed message. Many models lead students to process without explaining how to actually detach from the source language to actually achieve equivalency in the target language. When asked how they achieved their outcome, a common response has been to not know or it just happened.

 

However, if presented with a checklist of guided questions (decision tree), the student will discover more effective and reproducible results in message comprehension and expression of the target language using a more rich ASL-based interpretation that is produced inside a message equivalency from English to ASL. This process is an adaptation of parsing: to separate out and compartmentalized the message in order to unpack, rearrange, understand, and practice English to ASL interpreting with distinctive features that utilize the students abilities and knowledge of both languages.
