Semantics is defined as the study of meanings expressed by the elements of a language or a combination of the elements. A concept expressed in an ASL sign often cannot be conveyed by a single all-purpose English word. Likewise, English words and phrases may have variations in meaning, which require translations using different ASL signs. This workshop helps the student advance skills in translating the languages of ASL and English. (0.4 RID Ceus available!)
The Handshape is probably the most apparent parameter of ASL. Linguists have identified a large number of discrete Handshapes, which the signs are most look-like. Trix will demonstrate several categories that demonstrate various degrees of similarity for particular Handshapes, which can lead to misunderstandings. She will also show the proper application of palm orientation, location, and movement for the Handshapes. (0.4 RID CEUs available)
