Educational interpreters are language models for Deaf students. For some Deaf students, their interpreter is their only language model for a signed language. This workshop will help you explore the meaning of being a ‘language model’ and how this modeling impacts students acquiring at least two languages within the American school system, American Sign Language and English. The workshop then introduces concepts from cognitive linguistics to analyze how language provides access to knowledge structures through categorization and how each language provides specific ways of viewing, or construing, that knowledge. With this foundation in place, you will then review the depictive components of ASL. We will review how each concept is used in the spoken language community, and then how the Deaf community has further specified and evolved these depictions into language and modality-specific units.
Participants will be able to define metonymy and give one example of how it is used in depictive devices in ASL
Participants will be able to demonstrate how the English word photosynthesis can be metonymically depicted in ASL
Wink, MA, MBA, NIC Master, enjoys researching and creating various workshops that focus on skill building through deliberate practice, which he wrote about in the RID Views, Winter 2012 issue. Presenting workshops the last ten years at national conferences (NAD, RID, Silent Weekend) regional conferences (RID I, II, III, IV, V), state conferences, and local workshops across the nation has given Wink experiences to enhance applications for interpreters of all levels. Wink is widely noted for the comfortable atmosphere he creates and the passion he exudes. Currently Wink travels full time performing, presenting workshops, and managing Winkshop, Inc, through which he has developed a dozen training DVDs. Wink currently is working on his PhD in linguistics from Gallaudet University where he investigates the embodied motivations of imagery in depiction. (ASL: https://youtu.be/o4Pv0mAqETA)
