Non-Manual Signals: ASL Markers
This workshop has a focus on non-manual signals, which are not distinctive “hand signs” yet are essential language morphemes. Interpreters will analyze and apply these grammatical markers, which involve eye and head movements, facial movements and body postures rather than the use of “signs” as distinct lexical elements. Video clips and discussion will increase interpreters’ confidence in the use of non-manual markers (non-manual morphemes). (0.4 RID CEUs available)
