Making Your Interpretation Dynamic: Incorporating Classifiers - Frances J. Beaurivage, Manager, EIPA Diagnostic Center, RID CI/CT


Classifiers are a feature used in ASL to describe objects or groups of objects. We will discuss a variety of the acceptable classifier hand shapes and how hand shape movements change meaning. Participants will view several deaf adults telling a story using a variety of classifiers. Practice activities will focus on classifiers that can be used to represent sports events, body parts, the solar system and a variety of science
concepts.
