Mastery Over Meaning - Members
APRIL 22ND | 9:00AM - 1:30PM (PDT)
CCRID hosts William F. Ross III:
This workshop will address the very heart of interpreting: meaning. How do we manage the finer shades of meaning, address subtleties found in language and express the inferred? As interpreters, we determine meaning through a combination of factors such as context, intonation, intent, setting, and other linguistic features. To accurately interpret we must look past the individual words to determine the intended meaning of the speaker. Sometimes our understanding and knowledge of semantic meaning in our first language does not always translate into the ability to render an accurate interpretation in our second language. Often what remains unspoken communicates important ideas, themes, and feelings, these “metamessages” are at the heart of the interpreted message. Two significant tools used to express the unspoken ideals are implication and inference; we often use implication and inference to insinuate a variety of meaning beyond the words spoken. This training focuses on our interpretation from English to American Sign Language and how to gain mastery over meaning.
