APSDA DTCDW Day 10 A – Korea   1 comment

Today we focused on sign language discourse grammar.  This is a relatively new field in sign language linguistics.  A narrative story is a good story not just at the word and sentence level but at the story level.  In discourse studies we look at larger units, how they work together and their characteristics.  A translation consultant needs to be able to help translation teams with these part of their translation. In the first picture Pastor Minamida (Deaf Japan) teaches.  Behind him is a text he has studied using the ELAN programme.

Then Mark Penner (Hearing USA) taught and led discussion about discourse features of Japanese SL.
