Synopsis: International authorities contribute their research and findings to this book, probing the complex nature of interpreted interaction involving Deaf and hearing people of diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds. They also analyze the contextualized interpreting practices and considerations that transpire from this diversity. This collection shows how Deaf and hearing people use language in fluctuating ways to connect with each other across nations, continents, and languages. Part one includes a consideration of sign language interpreting at the border between Mexico and California. Part two includes an exploration of how to construct roles in a Maori Deaf trilingual context. Part three analyzes protocols for interpreting in multilingual international conferences.
