Application-driven terminology engineering

A standard framework lower than which a number of the stories on terminology processing may be seen is to think about not just the texts from which the terminological assets are equipped yet really the functions specific. the present e-book, first released as a different factor of Terminology 11:1 (2005), analyses the impact of purposes on time period definition and processing.

Arabic-English-Arabic Legal Translation

Arabic-English-Arabic felony Translation presents a groundbreaking research of the problems present in criminal translation among Arabic and English. Drawing on a contrastive-comparative method, it analyses parallel actual felony records in either Arabic and English to envision the gains of criminal discourse in either languages and discover the several translation concepts used.

Communication Across Cultures: Translation Theory and Contrastive Text Linguistics

Whereas the literature on both contrastive linguistics or discourse research has grown immensely within the final 20 years, little or no of it has ventured into fusing the 2 views. considering that doing discourse research and not using a contrastive base is as incomplete as doing contrastive research with out a discourse base, the explicit objective of this e-book is to argue that translation can upload intensity and breadth to either contrastive linguistics in addition to to discourse research.

Cyclical Change Continued

This booklet offers new information and extra questions concerning the linguistic cycle. the themes mentioned are the pronoun, destructive, unfavourable existential, analytic-synthetic, distributive, determiner, measure, and future/modal cycles. The papers bring up questions about the size of time that cycles take, the interactions among various cycles, the common phases and their balance, and the areal components influencing cycles.

In some cases, both forms are possible: trafic de drogue(s), saisies de drogue(s). . Translation effects, whether induced by the source language or universal strategies, are seldom violations of the target language system in professional translations, but quantitative deviations from the target language norm (see Schmied and Schäffler 1996). As such they are of course eligible as potential translation equivalents. What importance should be attached to them depends on their ‘naturalness’, which can only be evaluated against the norm provided by a large reference corpus of original texts representing the target language.

Both types exist on a cline from complete lexicalisation to linguistic creativity. Corpus-based investigations of these types of figurative language are problematic since they cannot be searched for on the basis of form, and Paillard therefore uses a mixture of sources in his study: dictionaries, textual examples and a sample from a translation corpus. Paillard demonstrates that the use of the two types tends to be diametrically opposed in English and French, in terms of both frequency and availability: while hypallage is more common in English, metonomy is in some respects more readily tolerated in French.
