1998 ASL Immersion Weekend Workshop

“Clarifying a Variety of Classifiers in ASL”
Presented by Mary Hill Telford

This workshop is designed to develop your knowledge of, and skills in, utilizing a variety of classifiers found in American Sign Language. Examples of these different types of classifiers include: descriptive, semantic, locative, body, instrument, plural, element, and body parts. These classifiers perform a variety of functions when using American Sign Language. At the end of the weekend you will be able to demonstrate an awareness of, and basic skills in, determining the amount of classifiers required for discourse or narrative. We will do many small group studies and activities to improve your ASL storytelling , discourse, and interpreting.
