Say What?

£11.95

Say What? The second printing of the best-seller ‘Say What You See’ that provides a window on sign language interpreting theory, particularly on the subject of voicing over from a signed two-way interpreted discourse into voice. It has been updated and enlarged with over 50 pages of new material. Say What? is for all those Sign Language Interpreters and Communication Support Workers who are interested in the theories and issues that can support them in improving their voice-over. Say What? challenges perceived common knowledge and suggests alternative ways. Many interpreting theories and issues are discussed including: Accommodation, Audience Design, Codes of Ethics, Core Meaning and Intent, Expert Memory, Grammatical Person, Interlocutor Expectations, Linguistic Back Channelling, Perceptual Defence, SKOPOS Theory and Working Memory. When this subject is debated by anyone who has an interest in sign language interpreting, the conversation invariably moves into the area of taboo, profanities, etc. There are three chapters on the subject of swearing in which many of the above theories are discussed and an unexpected stance suggested. Foreword: Jeff McWhinney.
