Phonology Matters in Interpreting


Katarzyna Stachowiak

This book bridges the gap between phonological and Interpreting Studies. It first presents interdisciplinary studies on interpreters and interpreting receivers. The subsequent chapters discuss phonology, phonological transfer and bilingual processing. The author also touches upon expertise and quality in interpreting, including phonological development. The final chapter presents a study on prosodic transfer in interpreting. Put succinctly, this book is about the role and importance of phonology and phonological processes in studying, practising and working on one’s interpreting.
