Auslan Rendition without Discourse Mapping
This version was created for the purpose of showing how a lack of discourse mapping features contributes to a less intelligible text. Thanks for Karen Bontempo for doing the best job possible in removing those features. (As I shared at the workshop in Perth, Karen’s example here is of what not to do – which a participant came up to me and shared how ironic that is because Karen’s work is often lifted up as the model to follow. So grateful that she was also able to provide a model NOT to follow but to learn from in understanding the importance of discourse mapping features.) You can see more on Discourse Mapping in Auslan here.
