Dr: Byron Bridges 

Classifiers is one of the most flexible and dynamic aspects of ASL. If ASL is not your first language, then it’s likely that using them did not come naturally to you. In this DVD, Dr. Byron Bridges will challenge you further by asking what type of classifier do you struggle with most. This presentation will teach you how to identify the types of classifiers there are and how to use them appropriately. It will introduce you to terms like “perimeter morpheme,” “movement roots,” and “classifier predicates” to give you tools to discuss your work. This DVD details classifiers in a scaffold approach that allows you to learn about this imperative linguistic aspect of ASL in a manner that is fun, thought provoking, and allows for creativity. Access to this DVD will provide you the means necessary to conduct deliberate practice. 

Dr. Byron Bridges earned his Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Deaf Studies at California State University of Northridge, a Masters of Arts (MA) degree in Linguistics from Gallaudet University and a doctoral degree (Ed.D) in Deaf Studies and Deaf Education at Lamar University. Dr. Bridges co-authored the book, Deaf Tend Yours. Bridges has been in the field of ASL linguistics, interpreting, and post secondary teaching of ASL as a second language for 30 years.
