American Sign Language interpretation involves more than translating words into signs. From his decades of experience as an interpreter educator, Campbell McDermid keenly understands this approach. McDermid's teachings are grounded in linguistics, research and theory, and his text aptly combines theoretical and practical exercises through use of examples, targeted exercises, and development of skills that are critical to the interpreting process. Learning to Interpret introduces a number of basic linguistic concepts and provides a guide for translating English to ASL. Students of interpretation will better understand how to paraphrase from an English source to an English target text, allowing them to more accurately translate the final text into ASL.
