When interpreting Between American Sign Language (ASL) and English, linguistic and cultural mediation is necessary to provide source and target message equivalence. One aspect of this mediation between ASLand English is the use of expansion and compression strategies. The use of these strategies allows interpreters to deliver both meaning and intention in the target language.
This CD-ROM provides a theoretical foundation for the use of expansion and compression as well as practice opportunities for incorporating these strategies while interpreting between ASL and English. Features include: printable articles that introduce the concepts of expansion and compression; source language sentences and texts that allow for incorporating expansion or compression features into the target language; model interpretations of source language sentences and texts; and printable transcripts of all spoken English texts.
An excellent resource for interpreters, interpreting students and teachers as well as ASL students and sign language teachers.
