Study Unit 6
Interpreting requires energy.
Energy is limited.
When available energy is insufficient or limited, the interpreter's production will diminish.

Non-automatic actions require more energy than automatic actions.
Listening and analysis effort
Production effort (speech production in simultaneous, and note
production during the first stage of consecutive - while the interpreter is
listening, but not interpreting yet)
Memory effort (the short-term Memory Effort essentially dealing with memory operations from the time a speech segment is heard to the time it is reformulated in the target speech or disappears from memory)
