Sometimes as interpreters we accurately convey the content of a message, but matching the source language’s register and shades of meaning/implied meaning in the target language can be difficult.  In this workshop we will explore register, connotation, and denotation within language.   We will explore various English as well as ASL interpretations and discuss why certain interpretations may ultimately be closer linguistic and cultural equivalents than others.
