Discourse and the Translator, Paperback

Discourse and the Translator Paperback

Part of the Language in Social Life series


Discourse and the Translator both incorporates and moves beyond previous studies of translation.

Its logical and informative approach to the problems of translation ensures that it will be essential for all those who work with languages 'in contact'.

Incorporating research in sociolinguistics, discourse studies, pragmatics and semiotics, the authors analyse the process and product of translation in their social contexts.

Through this analysis, the book emphasises the importance of the translator as a mediator between cultures.
