Glossing is a useful transcription tool when documenting vocabulary.  It is often used as a teaching tool for ASL language learners.  The problem comes when these “glossed” terms stick in the signers’ mind as s/he begins the education and practice of interpreting.  This workshop will discuss the true linguistic purpose of glossing, why it is appropriate in ASL studies but not interpreting, practice techniques to identify patterns of glossing and activities to change these patterns by introducing and reinforcing already known habits.
