  • reviewed the form and function of classifiers in figure/ground relationships.
  • learned more about cinematic techniques often employed in ASL narratives.
  • more specifically, learned how ASL maps the elements of an event onto signing space simulating real world space.
  • further developed your understanding of Viewpoint and Perspective.
  • enhanced your understanding of Point of View.
  • practiced cognitive tasks, e.g. Visualization and Mental Rotation.
  • identified Non-manual Signals (NMSs) and distinguished between those that carry linguistic meaning and those that show affect.
