Interpreter’s Workshop Theme: Interpreting the Bible for Church 

We will discuss names of people, cities, festivals and etc. in the Bible. We will discuss less popular stories in the Bible. Also, we will learn how to use similar signs with different words and how to include and appropriately use ASL idioms while interpreting during sermon. We will discuss registers, and allow the interpreter to see how the interpreter’s ability to express the emotion must be matched to the register. The ability/inability to do this may limit the Deaf community.
