Performatives are a commonly-occurring ASL discourse feature that include constructed action and dialogues. Often referred to as Character Role Shifting, this form of discourse can be challenging for interpreters to recognize and render accurately in spoken English due to its complex use of space and subtle movements of the eyes and body

This fun and informative workshop will expose interpreters to principles of performatives, provide steps for how to recognize and produce them in ASL texts, and show video examples of performatives in context for analysis and interpreting practice.

While not a quick-fix workshop, this session will enable interpreters at all levels to look at their work in a new, more effective way. Shift happens, so be ready for it!

Topics we will cover

   •      Identify key principles of ASL performatives

       Understand the subtle eye and body movements      used to produce constructed texts

       Recognize and produce performatives in ASL discourse

       Interpret performatives more effectively
