About the event
*Presented in ASL*
On the last page of the EIPA glossary one can find the description of discourse mapping:
“This item focuses on the interpreter's ability to represent contextual boundaries by producing a
visual/spatial locational map indicating components/sequence/relationships… this map indicates behaviors/relationships, physical characteristics and locations.” (Schick & Williams 2013:13)
In other words, this evaluation of message clarity at the very least takes into account how an interpreter 1) uses 3D, 2D, or 1D depictive spaces (“maps”) to place objects in their respective locations provided by the source message and 2) this is not limited to locations of objects but also behaviors and physical attributes of elements. Clearly then, there is a lot to unpack in-order to understand discourse mapping so that one can effectively practice this crucial set of items that native signers use daily.
At the conclusion of this program participants will be able to:
Define and provide one example of a “plain sign”
Define and provide one example of a “depictive sign”
Demonstrate at least 3 different depictive features
Explain how depiction is similar to other terms such as: Discourse mapping, spatial mapping, use of space, and showing.
Working or aspiring interpreters.
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. A fun fact: in 2016 alone, Wink traveled professionally enough miles to circle the earth over three times.
