Applied Discourse Analysis


Theresa Smith describes discourse this way, “If car parts are words and phrases, an assembled car is a language, and the rules of the road (including signs and signals) is discourse.”  When we are free to recognize and use discourse signals we experience the fluency and ease that we desire in our interpreting. This workshop is an exploration of those signs and signals in both ASL and English. Tapping into the experience of the group, exploring through inquiry, looking at language samples, reflecting on our own experience and insight, we take what we know and have learned and practice applying it. The goal of this workshop is both greater awareness of discourse structures and practice in using them in our work.
