This workshop will challenge interpreters to focus on details in their work that hinder conceptual accuracy, such as production errors and palm orientation. We will delve into specifics elements of ASL prosodic structure such as cheek puffing, changes in eye opening, and head movement which are used to indicate nuances in meaning and emotion. We will explore the difference between Expansion and Explanation. We will discuss strategies for properly employing Expansion and Compression at work.

This workshop is worth .35 CEUs.
