Domestication+Foreignisation=? A Nontraditional Approach to Audiovisual TranslationDomestication+Foreignisation=? A Nontraditional Approach to Audiovisual Translation

The purpose of the study is to investigate whether domestication and foreignisation may coexist in one translation because...is it truly impossible to use both strategies in a single translation? Moreover, the author will try to analyse how and in what contexts each strategy is used and what motivated the
translator’s choices.

Contemporary British Fiction and the Artistry of Space: Style, Landscape, PerceptionThis study examines the importance of space for the way contemporary novelists experiment with style and form, offering an account of how British writers from the past three decades have engaged with landscape description as a catalyst for innovation. David James considers the work of more than fifteen major British novelists to offer a wide-ranging and accessible commentary on the relationship between landscape and narrative design, demonstrating an approach to the geography of contemporary fiction enriched by the practice of aesthetic criticism.

Drawing on the conceptual metaphor and metonymy theory outlined in works by George Lakoff, Rene Dirven, Gunter Radden and Zoltan Kovecses, Conversion in English: A Cognitive Semantic Approach proposes that the process of conversion in contemporary English is basically a semantic process underlain by a series of conceptual metonymic and metaphoric mappings.

Lexical Diversity and Language Development: Quanitfication and Assessment

Vocabulary richness, including lexical diversity and use of rare words, has an important role in assessing proficiency, diagnosing progress and testing theory in the study of language development. This book first reviews different methods for quantifying how vocabulary is deployed in spontaneous speech and writing, and then introduces an alternative approach which can assess overall lexical diversity, measure morphology development and compare the development of different word classes.

The Manipulation of Literature: Studies in Literary TranslationFirst published in 1985, the essays in this edited collection offer a representative sample of the descriptive and systematic approach to the study of literary translation. The book is a reflection of the theoretical thinking and practical research carried out by an international group of scholars who share a common standpoint. They argue the need for a rigorous scientific approach the phenomena of translation – one of the most significant branches of Comparative Literature – and regard it as essential to link the study of particular translated texts with a broader methodological position.
