Have you ever been interpreting and heard the phrase "Mrs Sabrina you be channeling the chucks!!!" or "I can't believe he threatened to steal on her!!". We all experience hearing slang working in the educational system, VRS, and freelance assignments. The problem is, what do we do with is? This workshop takes a look at slang that is used by the current younger generation and addresses the issue of what does an interpreter do when they hear these phrases. Working with younger generations means understanding their language and being able to interpret it effectively. This workshop teaches skills that help educate interpreters on current slang, how to interpret slang, and what to do when they are faced with terms they are unfamiliar with.

Presenter: Sabrina Smith, PhD

This workshop is presented in American Sign Language, no voice interpretation provided.

Target Audience: Interpreters, ITP Students, Teachers of the Deaf
