Course Description for Interpreting Simultaneous Monologue
Interpreting Simultaneous Monologue
Prerequisite: INT 4272
Description: This course serves as a transition from dialogic interpreting to monologic interpreting between American Sign Language and English. The course builds on a process-oriented model, which applies essential cognitive strategies in order to interpret dynamically equivalent extended monologues. These strategies include comprehending and analyzing messages for implicit and explicit meaning, identifying linguistic and cultural challenges in the text, and applying demand-control techniques for message accuracy.
