Why Bloomberg’s Interpreter So Animated?

Lydia Callis, skilled interpreter for Mayor Bloomberg

Found an EXCELLENT article that carefully walks readers through the reasons why Mayor Bloomberg’s interpreter, Lydia Callis, was so animated.

Arika Okrent, author of “Why Do Sign Language Interpreters Look So Animated?” carefully walks readers through the various facial expressions of Lydia Callis.  As an easy linguistic read I feel it will be an insightful article for Deaf and hearing people alike.

I respect Okrent and her work to inform others about the incredibly complex job of Mayor Bloomberg’s interpreter.  Well done!
