Presented by Trix Bruce!

Non-manual signals (NMS) in American Sign Language enrich and clarify the meaning of manual signs. Come and learn the art of painting your face with a full spectrum of NMS colors and designs. Non-Manual Signals include: 1) Non-Manual Adverbs, 2) Lexical Non-Manual Behaviors, 3) Non-Manual Grammatical Markers, 4) Emotional States / Evaluative judgments, 5) Prosodic Structure, 6) Discourse Structure, 7) Turn Taking, 8) Backchannel Feedback, 9) Grammatical "Sound" Markers, and 10) Mouth Movements. This workshop will focus on developing accurate non-manual signals and markers as used in ASL. Demonstrations of each category of facial behaviors and head movements will be shown in context. Practice exercises will be offered. By the end of this workshop, you'll be an artist! (0.7 RID CEUs available)
