This collective volume delves into the intricacies of sign language interpreting in five distinctive chapters. The first chapter investigates the shifting attitudes of Deaf leaders toward sign language interpreting. In the next chapter on British Sign Language it is observed that English interpreters in higher education cannot be viewed in isolation since all participants and the environment have a real impact on the way events unfold. In chapter three the prevalence of chronic physical injury among Australian Sign Language interpreters is explored. In chapter four an assessment is made of regulators used by teachers and interpreters in mainstreaming classrooms in in the fifth chapter it is examined how interpreters convey innuendo.
