What’s the Point: Understanding the Message, Speaker Intent, and Making Appropriate Semantic Sign Choices
Presenter: Frances J. Beaurivage Manager EIPA Diagnostic Center , RID CI/CT
This training will guide participants through a series of steps that will result in a deeper understanding of the speaker’s intent. The goal is to help interpreters change their approach to the interpreting process, which will result in interpretations that more clearly convey the speaker’s implied intent. When we understand the speaker’s intentions we can then ensure that sign selections are semantically appropriate.
