Interpreter Biomechanics - in Boynton Beach
Sunday, January 27, 2013 from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM (PST)
Boynton Beach, FL
This is registration for ONLY "Interpreter Biomechanics in Boynton Beach on Sunday, January 27th.
"Interpreter Biomechanics" focuses on biomechanics of generating ASL target texts and how interpreters use our muscles to do our work.
Subjects will include Hand Configuration, Location of signs within our “work envelope”, Movement force, Holds & Static Loading, Changing work habits to incorporate Micro Rest Breaks, Body Posture / Stance & Breathing, and the effect of processing depth upon reducing mental stress. Specific instruction to improve the perception of numbers and fingerspelling will also be provided as a group activity.
This presentation is intended to systematically and consistently apply linguistic principles to evaluating the physical aspects of our work and to understand the nature of both physical and mental aspects of interpreting. Audience members should already have a basic understanding of linguistic terminology in order to gain a practical application of phonetics and phonology to their own work.
