The use of words and phrases that are considered obscenities or foul language in
The use of words and phrases that are considered obscenities or foul language in spoken English discourse are not always used the same way or with the same subtext in ASL and Deaf culture environment (in fact is often used in non-offensive or derogatory manner) and often can present difficulties in voicing ASL discourse accurately or receptive comprehension in conversation. This workshop will clarify the actual contextual meanings of specific words and phrases as they are used in ASL discourse and the best way to voice or otherwise interpret these words/phrases.
At the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:
1. Identify a set of “foul” words and phrases used in ASL as non-offensive discourse
2. Deconstruct and determine the best contextual translation into English structure.
3. Translate different examples of “foul” discourse in the appropriate context.
