Multilingualism and Translation

Studies on Slavonic and Non-Slavonic Languages in Contact

Series:

Edited By Vladislava Warditz and Beatrix Kreß

This collection of essays tackles the issues that arise when multilingualism meets translation and discusses the findings with a particular focus on Slavonic migrant languages. Despite its high relevance from both the theoretical and the applied perspective, the intersection of multilingualism and translation has been rather neglected in international research on multilingualism. This volume intends to create a new angle within this wide field of research and to systematize the most relevant approaches and ideas on this topic in international Slavonic studies.

Eurooptymista, Europarlament, Europosłanka, Eurosierota, Euromeble,… A Lexicographical Focus on an International Compound Type (A Comparison of Polish and German)

Abstract

This article deals with the Polish confix euro-, which is specific in many ways. The confix shows a culture-related semantic structure, is pragmatically marked and can be used in a way that differs from the use of the same confix in other languages (e.g. German euro-). This paper shows the main differences in the use of the Polish confix euro- and examines the necessity of including it in a bilingual dictionary.
