Abstract

The project aims to explore the cognitive load of sign language interpreting and compare it with oral interpreting. The premise aims to establish whether sign language interpreters face a comparable cognitive load, despite the expectedly lower interference, and whether the cognitive load changes for sign language interpreters when they are retour interpreting.
