El volumen reúne 14 trabajos cuyo objetivo es reflexionar sobre la problemática de la traducción e interpretación de lenguas ibéricas. Se hace especial hincapié en los aspectos normativos, el papel de las interferencias lingüísticas y de los conocimientos extralingüísticos en la traducción e interpretación, además de los métodos y estrategias traslativas utilizadas en la determinación de equivalentes. Los estudios que integran este ejemplar se apoyan en los métodos de investigación tanto cualitativos como cuantitativos. Sus resultados se articulan conforme a tres categorías temáticas: (1) normatividad, (2) equivalencia y (3) calidad. El libro nos ofrece una serie de claves para producir traducciones e interpretaciones de calidad y agilizar el proceso de toma de decisiones translatorias.

The volume brings together 14 works which aim to reflect on the problems of translation and interpretation from and into Iberian languages. It puts emphasis on normative aspects, translational strategies used in the determination of equivalents, the role of linguistic interferences and extralinguistic knowledge in translation and interpretation. The studies included in the monograph are based on both qualitative and quantitative research methods. Their results presented are divided into three thematic categories: (1) normativity, (2) equivalence, (3) quality. The book offers us a series of pointers to produce quality translations and interpretations and to improve the translational decision-making process.

In the volume, to locate the science of language and communication in the most recent philosophical and methodological context that science offers today, we have proposed reconciling two avenues of the scientific process, i.e. the “third-person observation-experiment-algorithm method being the traditional method of doing science; and the inner, first-person insights of contemplative science, in a sense of phenomenological flânerie through unexplored cultural landscapes”. The present book targets research addressing the phenomenological aspect of communication and the methodology of linguistic research. The volume may be of interest to linguistic scholars, cultural linguists, semioticians, interdisciplinary scholars, and students of the humanities and cultural/social specialisations.

This monograph offers an analysis of the lexical domain of beauty and other additional lexical domains that are figuratively used to refer to beauty, highlighting their central role in the Anglo-Saxon formulaic style. Using different methods from computational and cognitive linguistics, this study is aimed at determining the exact semantic value of these terms, detecting possible patterns of metaphorization and metonymization and identifying strategies behind their usage, ultimately determining how beauty was conceptualised and experienced in early Medieval England and in its literature. This research evidences the importance of this aesthetic idea in the Old English poetry and its aesthetic paradigm and revealing the core associations between beauty and other religious and social ideas.

This volume deals with the language of the British upper class in natural face-to-face dialogue and how this is rendered fictionally in audiovisual media. Its main aim is that of reorganising the sparse information on the topic that is found in previous scholarly studies through a qualitative methodological approach.

After focusing on the linguistic description and evolution of the upper-class sociolect, the study offers original insights on the language of the Royal Family and its representation in the TV series The Crown.

The results from this research, which combines the disciplines of sociolinguistics and dialectology applied to the audiovisual text, will hopefully open a new path in the study of language of elite groups in Britain, arguably an under-researched topic.

Usage of the adnominal genitive (one or more genitive substantives in relationship to a head noun) is one of most ambiguous aspects of the Greek language of the New Testament, and thus the source of contentious debate among exegetes. This study finds a way forward in the understanding of the genitive case by examining concatenations of single and multiple genitives, testing methods on the Pauline corpus as a representative sample of adnominal genitive usage in the whole New Testament. The results are offered with a set of rules that are vital in assisting the interpreter in clarifying these often difficult expressions. This book offers fresh insight especially where genitives appear in concatenation, and examines the syntactical configurations of genitive constructions with a view to untangling their semantics.

The book consists of a comprehensive in-depth analysis of the Chinese post-1970s writers group, especially the literary xiangjun five young writers and their representative works. It includes a multi-dimensional interpretation of the writing characteristics, narrative law and artistic construction of the "generation in the seam," fully displaying this transformation period of Chinese traditional values. Specifically, in terms of the book’s content and structure, there is (1) a broad vision with the ideological premise of modernity, (2), a high degree of "local" and "globalization," and (3), a demonstration of the importance of China's excellent cultural resources.

Dieses Buch versteht sich als ein Beitrag zur Textlinguistik, verfolgt jedoch eine andere Zielsetzung als die üblichen Publikationen zur Textforschung. Es stellt den zweiten Band eines zweibändigen Projekts dar. Das gesamte Vorhaben hat zum Ziel, zwei wissenschaftliche Schreibkulturen im Hinblick auf die Disziplin miteinander in Beziehung zu setzen. Der erste Band widmete sich der germanistischen Textlinguistik. Im zweiten Band werden Entwicklungen der polonistischen Textlinguistik und der Textsorten, ihre Traditionen und Schwerpunkte charakterisiert sowie die Disziplin in der aktuellen Sprachforschung situiert. Die Problematik ergibt sich aus dem Forschungsstand, sie wird aber auch durch die Relation zum germanistischen Pendant geprägt und aus dessen Perspektive gezeigt.

The aim of the present book is to examine the social and cultural diversity of language teacher education, providing a unified account of highly diversified teacher development and appraisal realities across sociocultural contexts. We will strive to make an overview of a wide range of issues related to teacher development approaches and models, teacher competences, adopted roles, stressors and motivators, teacher appraisal systems, professional examinations and certifications as well as digital opportunities for teacher development. All of these concepts will be discussed in a wide social and cultural context, trying to bring examples from numerous countries.
