Perspectives from Systemic Functional Linguistics

Perspectives from Systemic Functional Linguistics

This innovative collection brings together contributions from established and emerging scholars highlighting the "appliability" of Systemic Functional Linguistics and the ways in which theoretical and analytical conclusions drawn from its applications can inform and advance the study of language. The book discusses SFL’s theoretical foundations and development in recent years to demonstrate its evolution into a more effective analytical tool. Building on this theoretical framework, the volume showcases the theory’s applications in case studies exploring four sub-disciplines of language study: multilingual studies; translation studies; language learning and language teaching; and genre analysis. This all-inclusive volume demonstrates both Systemic Functional Linguistics’ efficacy as a means of theoretical analysis, but also its value as a unique approach to the study of language and meaning, making this an indispensable resource for researchers and scholars in applied linguistics, discourse analysis, genre studies, translation studies, and multilingualism.

Through Other Eyes

The Translation of Anglophone Literature in Europe

Through Other Eyes

The present volume represents the results of ideas put forward by specialists of literature, linguistics and translation studies at the Institution of Translation in Europe conference held at the University of Provence in June/July 2006. Its aim is to investigate how English-language literary works have been translated, with the focus primarily on French, and how they have been disseminated in Europe throughout a period going as far back as the Renaissance. Exactly how were translations carried out and with whose support? Which official institutions were involved? What were the translators’ intentions? How ‘faithful’ were translations with regard to source texts? What kind of linguistic and literary difficulties were involved in the translations? These are just some of the questions that the present volume aims to answer. It attempts to give an overview which covers a variety of aspects on the complex task of making suitable translations available to the European public. The result, however, is that translations have often been portrayed in quite a different light to the original…
