Workshop Description Beyond their respective parts of speech, what are the differences between the words, “into” and “enter”? What about “Explode” and “Explosion”? These words have different conceptual meanings, in that your mind sees them differently. What can this do for us as language learners? Learning how your mind categorizes meaning and how meanings are manifested in language can change the way you look at language and the world. This workshop focuses on how your mind dynamically creates meaning and will selectively choose words and sentences that communicate your intention. Once we analyze this we can have a deeper understanding of our mind and languages. I am hoping that when we improve this skill, we can learn to articulate our conceptualizations in ASL more accurately

Presenter Bio: 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.
