Prerequisite: acceptance into the interpreting program and a grade of C- or better in ASL 375 and ASL-312 (or by placement). Designed as a lecture/lab, this course concentrates on the successful interpretation of texts within a simultaneous interpreting framework. Students incorporate linguistic and functional text analyses into simultaneous interpretations, work with both recorded material and guest speakers, and are introduced to the techniques of relay (Deaf intermediary) interpreting. Students are expected to produce accurate and fluent simultaneous interpretations and increasingly difficult monologues, dialogues, interviews and group discussions. Students are introduced to transliteration, producing accurate and fluent transliterations over a variety of topics. (Offered every fall semester.)
