Introduction to Classifiers

Classifiers are an integral part of ASL.  It is through the use of classifiers that ASL expresses such things as prepositions, location relationships, adjective information, plurals, the visual spatial properties of the language and different aspects of verbs.  Traditionally, it has been very difficult for late learners of ASL to acquire proficiency in using classifiers.  This series aims to address that difficulty, especially for interpreters who may never have had specific instruction on this topic.

This program, along with all the others in the Self Study series, contains the following parts: a theoretical section, in which the linguistic foundation of classifiers and their use in ASL is explained; and a practical section, where you can practice what you have learned.  Each activity section has its own introduction that explains the lesson.

Please note, we will most often use the term “Non-manual Signals“, abbreviated NMS, to refer to grammatical information in ASL that does not come from the hands.  You may also see the term “Non-manual Marker” (NMM) used in this program.

At the end of this program there is a quiz for you to take.  As with the lesson section, you will be given instant feedback on your answer choices.  If you wish to earn RID CEUs for this program, you must answer all the quiz questions correctly.  When you have done so, you will be prompted to enter your RID member number (or your zip code if you are not an RID member). A Completion Code will appear.  Write down this code.  Then go to the Request CEUs/Evaluation Form section to report your Completion Code and complete the evaluation form.

These instructions are also provided in the Quiz and Request CEUs/Evaluation Form sections.

We hope that by using this program and all the other programs in the series dedicated to classifiers you will increase your fluency in ASL.

 

Learning Objectives

By the time you have finished working with this program, you will have:

  • learned the form and function of classifiers in general.
  • been exposed to vocabulary for the specific types of classifiers.
  • seen examples of Entity, Trace and Manipulative Handle classifiers.
  • been able to identify Non-manual Signals (NMS) and distinguish between those that carry linguistic information and those that show affect.
  • been able to recognize role shifts.
  • learned the importance of changing viewpoint and perspective.
  • practiced along with the texts, or independent of them, using all the major features of ASL covered in this program.

Introduction

Welcome to the sixth program in the Classifiers Self Study Series – “Point of View, Part Two.”

Classifiers are an integral part of ASL.  It is through the use of classifiers that ASL expresses such things as prepositions, location relationships, adjective information, plurals, the visual spatial properties of the language and different aspects of verbs.  Traditionally, it has been very difficult for late learners of ASL to acquire proficiency in using classifiers.  This series aims to address that difficulty, especially for interpreters who may never have had specific instruction on this topic.

These instructions are also provided in the Quiz and Request CEUs/Evaluation Form sections.

We hope that by using this program and all the other programs in the series dedicated to classifiers you will increase your fluency in ASL.

Learning Objectives

  • To continue to improve knowledge and use of classifiers.
  • To continue practice and use of visualization skills.
  • To demonstrate an understanding of Point of View – where an event is described from more than character’s point of view and the elements are aligned accordingly.
  • To be able to differentiate between the Non-Manual Signals (NMS) used to show emotions and those used to provide linguistic information.
  • To be able to detect when there is a change in eye gaze which signals when a different character and/or the narrator is activated.

Introduction

Welcome to the fifth program in the Classifiers Self Study Series – “Point of View, Part One.”

Classifiers are an integral part of ASL.  It is through the use of classifiers that ASL expresses such things as prepositions, location relationships, adjective information, plurals, the visual spatial properties of the language and different aspects of verbs.  Traditionally, it has been very difficult for late learners of ASL to acquire proficiency in using classifiers.  This series aims to address that difficulty, especially for interpreters who may never have had specific instruction on this topic.

At the end of this program there is a quiz for you to take.  As with the lesson section, you will be given instant feedback on your answer choices.  If you wish to earn RID CEUs for this program, you must answer all the quiz questions correctly.  When you have done so, you will be prompted to enter your RID member number (or your zip code if you are not an RID member). A Completion Code will appear.  Write down this code.  Then go to the Request CEUs/Evaluation Form section to report your Completion Code and complete the evaluation form.
