Basic Role Shift Sequence
1. Tell where you and the other person are located.
2. Shift shoulders to "become" yourself in the conversation.
3. Sign your part.
4. Shift your shoulders to the OTHER side to "become" the other person.
5. Sign their response.
1. You toss an egg to another person.
2. You throw a screwdriver to a person standing on the roof of a house.
3. You throw a long football pass down field to a receiver.
4. You snap a knife with butter on the end at another person.
5. You throw a Frisbee to another person.
6. You swing your leg and your sandal comes off and flies toward the other person.
7. You are twirling a chain on your finger and it slips off in the direction of the person sitting beside you.
8. While you are signing you knock your glasses off and they fly toward the other person.
9. You spit your gum out the front window of a car and it is blown back in through the rear window toward the other passenger in the back seat.
Practice: set up each person, the object, then tell one of the possible outcomes. Just try your best!!! I know it won't be perfect on the first try! I will assign numbers.

Parts of a Narrative
(this will be on the SN 18 test)
I. Introduction
A. Create the context for the story.
* description of the environment and people
* relationships of the people

How to Describe Injuries in a Narrative
Puncture - small pointed object
Puncture - large flat object
Several scratches

Broken bones

All of these signs are directional, which means they can be used anywhere on the body to change the meaning.
Describing an injury outside the sign space.
BPCL (body part classifiers) are used to describe an injury that occurs on the body outside of the sign space (leg, foot, ankle, etc.)
1.) Fingerspell the body part 2.) Use BPCL to describe the injury
fs-LEG use BPCL: "forearm"
fs-ANKLE use BPCL: "wrist"
fs-KNEE use BPCL: "back of hand"
fs-TOE use BPCL: "finger"
fs-FOOT use BPCL: "hand"
fs-BACK no BPCL is used - sign in
neutral space
I was walking down the street when I tripped on a rock. I fell down and got scrapes all over my knee.

My sister and her husband are building a new house. I was walking around outside their new house when I felt something sharp pierce through my shoe. I sat down, took my shoe off and noticed there was blood gushing from the bottom of my foot!
II. Body
A. Describe the situation leading up to the event
* elaborate on thoughts, behaviors, reactions, and feelings
B. Tell what happened
* Use a role shift sequence
* Time your reactions to match the action
* Use a transition
* Tell the results

* a general comment about the story
SN 18 Written Test
You don't need anything except a pen or pencil!
Jon Galloway is a good friend of mine who works as an interpreter in San Antonio. He will be coming in to talk about how he learned ASL, tips on learning it, his experiences in the Deaf community, as well as show you how to interpret!

There will be some voicing and some signing. I don't expect you guys to sign to him, you can talk! :)

Guest Speaker tomorrow!

If you don't know "THE SIGN" for something... OR if the person you are talking to doesn't understand... what do you do??


Example: DOG
YOU KNOW ANIMAL RS: "ears floppy, tongue out, panting"
What was the best gift you have ever gotten for Christmas?
Role Shifting is an important aspect of ASL grammar, and conveys the following:
It allows the narrator to “speak” from a character’s perspective.
It differentiates between characters in a story or message.
Places a quoted phrase or passage in the context of a visual interaction.
Eliminates the need for redundant “He said.../She said…” dialogue.
What is Role Shifting???

Body shifting = characters are designated into a set location (right/left/center/up/down) and remain there consistently.
Eye gaze = this establishes referents in space (right/left, up/down, two equals)… eye gaze depends on the subjects considered and the actions taking place (ie- teacher/student, cop/motorist, etc.).
Facial expressions = emotions of the characters can and should be conveyed for clarity (ie- anger, surprise, joy, etc.).
Character traits/mannerisms = one must also consider the physical mannerisms of the character (ie- prissy woman, pouting child, elderly man, animal, etc.)
Non-verbal behaviors = includes those simultaneous actions that the character is also engaged in (ie- dog barking, chewing food, etc.)
How does one employ role shifting in A.S.L., and what can it include?
1) One character - the narrator becomes the character, taking on his/her actions, manners, and feelings. In order for a role shift to be successful, the signer must involve both the body and the eyes. His/her eye gaze must appear to be truly looking at the person, place, or thing he/she is interacting with or referring to. Here's an example....
Different types of role shifting:
2) Two character – the signer shifts from narrator in a dialogue/interplay to two distinctly different characters. The character shifting must include all of the fitting actions (eye gaze, expressions, mannerisms) of each character, and must be consistently differentiated in space. Fast forward to the 2:22 mark....
3) Multiple character - this signer takes on an infinite number of characters, while maintaining the consistent body shifting, eye gaze, traits, etc. The more characters involved, the trickier it is to consistently account for each character! Here are a couple great examples....
Basic Role Shift Sequence
Note: For injuries to the back, spell out B-A-C-K and then establish the "back" in the neutral space in front of you to describe the injury.
If the injury is on the face/head, torso, arm, elbow or hands, then there is no need to name the body part. Just describe the injury to that body part.
Last week I was baking cookies for my family. When I was taking them out of the oven, my son walks up behind me and puts his hands straight down on the open (and very hot!!) oven door. After an hour of screaming and crying, I looked at my son's hands and they were red and burned.

When I was in 4th grade, I was playing on the monkey bars with my friend. We were laughing and playing when all of a sudden, I lost my grip and fell to the ground. After a trip to the hospital and a pink cast, I realized I had broken my arm.
To transition from an uneventful situation to one that becomes unexpected use "wrong."
My friend was sitting in her desk during English class and she fell asleep! All of a sudden, she falls out of her desk and hits her elbow on the floor. Now she has a big purple bruise on her elbow.

My little brother was riding his bike around the neighborhood. He saw a lizard and started chasing after it on his bike. Little did he know there was a crack in the sidewalk and when his bike hit it, he went flying and got a big lump on his forehead.

Yesterday after school, I was so tired and I decided to take a nap when I got home. After about an hour of sleeping, I woke up and stumbled to get some water. I wasn't fully awake when I stubbed my toe on the door frame. It is purple and I can barely walk.

Use the sign "HAPPEN" to bridge the
two parts of the story together!
