Have you ever been interpreting and heard the phrase “Mrs Sabrina you be channeling
Have you ever been interpreting and heard the phrase “Mrs Sabrina you be channeling the chucks!!!” or “I can’t believe he threatened to steal on her!!”. We all experience hearing slang working in the educational system, VRS, and freelance assignments. The problem is, what do we do with it? This workshop takes a look at slang that is used by the current younger generation and addresses the issue of what does an interpreter do when they hear these phrases. Working with younger generations means understanding their language and being able to interpret it effectively. This workshop teaches skills that help educate interpreters on current slang, how to interpreter slang, and what to do when they are faced with terms they are unfamiliar with.
• Interpreters will demonstrate knowledge of current slang used by the current school age generation.
• Interpreters will demonstrate skills needed to produce an ASL product that includes an understanding of the material presented in the workshop.
• Interpreters will acquire the skills necessary to improve their own product through education when they are faced with situations where they are unable to understand and interpret slang terminology.
