The lecture meeting concerning the difference of the sign language interpreter in the United States and Japan is scheduled for May 29, Saturday, 14:00-16:30 in Tokyo.
Kozo Kasuga will speak about the "gap of the meaning of JSL and spoken Japanese", "Is a conversational JSL expression possible to be interpreted in a legal term?", etc.
Kozo who once attended Gallaudet University, has especially studied the differences in the meaning of the word expressed by the Deaf person and the hearing counterpart.
He said that the expressed words produced by either of the party are exchanged or interpreted without recognizing the difference, misunderstanding will occur at times.
*No spoken interpreting.
