English-ASL interpreting students, educators, practitioners and mentors will find this second edition of Interpretation Skills: English to American Sign Language useful and informative. The first edition sold over 25,000 copies; Interpreting Consolidated expects the second to be a bestseller also.

Based on new research in ASL and interpreting practice, the book incorporates a wealth of additional Key Skills and Possible Errors. It categorizes and describes 85 Key Skills (over 30 skills more than the original book) within eight Major Features:

  • Fingerspelling
  • Numbers
  • Lexicon
  • Classifiers
  • Space
  • Grammar
  • Interpreting
  • Composure, Appearance and Health

Accompanying the descriptions of the eight Major Features are explanations of related Possible Errors, with over 400 specific examples.

Interpretation Skills: English to ASL (Second Edition) is also an important resource for people involved in assessing the skill levels of interpreters for education, employment, accreditation or self-improvement purposes.
