Sign Language Interpreting: Deconstructing the Myth of Neutrality

by

Sign Language Interpreting: Deconstructing the Myth of Neutrality Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her new, significant work, Melanie Metzger demonstrates clearly that the ideal of an interpreter as a neutral language conduit does not exist. Metzger offers evidence of this disparity by analyzing two videotaped ASL-English interpreted medical interviews, one an interpreter-trainee mock interview session, and the other an actual encounter between a deaf client and a medical professional. Sign Language Interpreting asks fundamental questions regarding interpreter neutrality. First, do interpreters influence discourse, and if so, how? Also, what kind of expectations do the participants bring to the event, and what do the interpreters bring to discussions? Finally, how do their remarks affect their alignment with participants in the interaction? This penetrating book discloses the ways in which interpreters affect exchanges, and it also addresses the potential implications of these findings regarding sign language interpretation in medical, educational, and all other general interactions. Interpreter trainers and their students will join certified interpreters and deaf studies scholars in applauding and benefitting from the fresh ground broken by this provocative study.

Book News Annotation:

Demonstrates that the ideal of a sign language interpreter as a nonpartisan language conduit does not exist in reality, and offers evidence of this disparity by analyzing two videotaped ASL-English interpreted medical interviews. Looks at how interpreters influence discourse, expectations of participants and interpreters in discussions, and the ways in which interpreters affect exchanges, and addresses potential implications of these findings regarding language interpretation in medical, educational, and other contexts.
