Interactive Powerpoint - Vincenti

  1. 1. <ul><li>Gina Vincenti ED 205-04 </li></ul>English & ASL Idioms to Deaf and Hard of Hearing students
  2. 2. <ul><li>What is an Idiom? </li></ul><ul><li>Why use Idioms? </li></ul><ul><li>Misunderstanding English </li></ul><ul><li>Misunderstanding English (cont.) </li></ul><ul><li>Examples: English </li></ul><ul><li>Explanation </li></ul><ul><li>Examples: ASL </li></ul><ul><li>Explanation </li></ul><ul><li>Quiz </li></ul><ul><li>Bio </li></ul><ul><li>Resources </li></ul><ul><li>Concept Map </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Idiom: </li></ul><ul><li>An expression whose meaning is not predictable from the usual meanings of its constituent elements </li></ul><ul><li>Kicked the Bucket? </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>To emphasize more colorful language </li></ul><ul><li>Make a point more clear (sometimes) </li></ul><ul><li>Euphemism: &quot;making something sound better“ </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: Toilet – Bathroom – Restroom – Powder Room </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>The English language, though widely spoken throughout the world, isn’t as easily understood even by some of it’s native speakers. With so many different plays on words, homophones, euphemisms and idioms can be very misleading and even lead to misunderstandings. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Some times, English sentences can be misinterpreted or figures of speech can be taken literally. The children’s story of “Amelia Bedelia” shows that even native English speakers can get confused.
  7. 7. <ul><li>All Ears </li></ul><ul><li>Missed the Boat </li></ul><ul><li>Turn a deaf ear to… </li></ul><ul><li>Beats me </li></ul><ul><li>Kicked the Bucket </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Listening intently </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You missed whatever concept was being talked about </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To ignore </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To not know something </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To have died, be dead </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>English Idioms: </li></ul><ul><li>Since many English idioms are ‘coded’ or do not have a direct connection to the meaning, they are often expected to be understood by the individual. This is clearly seen in the idiom ‘all ears’ which doesn’t literally mean that one is covered in all ears. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Think-Disappear </li></ul><ul><li>Touch-Finish </li></ul><ul><li>Train-go-sorry </li></ul><ul><li>Big-Head </li></ul><ul><li>Question-on-Brain </li></ul><ul><li>Forgot thought </li></ul><ul><li>Been there, done that </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You missed whatever concept was being talked about </li></ul></ul><ul><li>To have a big ego </li></ul><ul><li>Puzzled, confused </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>ASL Idioms: </li></ul><ul><li>While English have a tendency to be less clear in their actual meanings, ASL idioms are usually more literal. Visually, you are able to see exactly what he idiom says as well as what it actually means. Questions on the brain clearly points to a mind </li></ul><ul><li>full of unanswered questions. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Translate each Idiom: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The Last Straw </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Funny-None </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Once in a blue moon </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Feel-Deflated </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Down to Earth </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Past-Eyes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Black sheep in family </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do-Do-Do </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>On the fence </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mind-Frozen </li></ul></ul>
