This podcast explains how to use role-taking in sign languages, a phenomenon which has been described by linguists as Constructed Action (CA).

As a part of CA, Constructed Dialogue (CD) can be performed. CA and CD are important components of sign languages and effectively represent mental images.

We will also show how to teach CA and CD.
