Research talk by our 2013 MA alumnus, Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle, and his research partner Edna Babbitt. Matt is now a Certified Health Care Interpreter working at a research hospital in Chicago. He has received a grant to carry out a research project that will knock your socks off.  It has to do with the role of interpreters for speech pathologists when the Spanish-speaking patient has aphasia. One little example to pique your interest: 

The speech pathologist holds up a wallet and asks the patient to say what it’s called. (The answer is “cartera.”).  The patient says, “carretera,” which sounds a lot like the real answer but which actually means “highway.”

What does the interpreter do?
