ASL SEMANTICS: The Word of Out, 2009 / 60 Minutes, Performed in ASL, No Voice.
Semantics is defined as the study of meanings expressed by the elements of a language or a combination of the elements. A concept expressed in an ASL sign often cannot be conveyed by a single all-purpose English word. Likewise, English words and phrases may have variations in meaning, which require translations using different ASL signs. This workshop helps the participant advance skills in translating the languages of ASL and English. Demonstration Video Clip: ASL Semantics “OUT”
