These workshops will be conducted in American Sign Language

Saturday Morning, April 11, 2015 9:30 - 11:30am

“Mouthing Morphemes”
Mouthing-Morphemes are an important part of communication in ASL. They are mouth movements to support ASL grammar on your face (mouth area). This is not the mouthing of English words used in oral communication. They have a specific context that relates with ASL signs and structure. Example: We use "cha" with ASL signs for "a thick book" or use "ooo" with ASL signs for "a thin book."
The workshop targets participants of varying skill levels from ASL students to working interpreters. Participants will learn and how to incorporate mouthing morphemes into their communication and interpretation in a fun and interactive approach. The instructor will do observational assessments as participants work through their understanding and incorporation of each mouthing morpheme (Eng - ASL).

Saturday Afternoon, April 11, 2015 1:00 - 5:00pm

“Communications in the Technical World in ASL - Graphic, Art and Website"
Signs of Technology are an important part of communication in ASL (formal and non-formal). Techniques for using specialized discourse with technical terms includes vocabulary (signs), grammar, classifiers, visual, space, and fingerspelling which are properly applied to match technical information. Context is applied when using vocabulary - Example: “copy, cut, paste” on the computer screen compared to paper showing different signs and visual aspects of terms. This is an advanced training open to working interpreters and participants who are fluent in ASL.
