Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description:
New Ways of Analysing Translational Behaviour in Corpus-Based Translation Studies

For the 46th Annual Meeting of the Societas Linguistica Europaea (SLE) in Split, Croatia (18-21 September 2013), we are planning to organise a workshop on New Ways of Analysing Translational Behaviour in Corpus-Based Translation Studies. The aim of the workshop is twofold: (i) to bring together advanced quantitative studies of translated texts (compared to non-translated texts on the one hand and/or source texts on the other hand), building on large-scale, well-structured parallel or comparable corpora, which provide a more fine-grained insight into translational tendencies and which elaborate on explanatory devices uncovered in previous studies (studies on other languages than English are especially solicited); (ii) to investigate to what extent other, complementary methods from related research fields or new data sources can improve the descriptive and explanatory accuracy of corpus-based results.

Workshop Convenors:

Gert De Sutter (University College Ghent / Ghent University, Belgium)
Isabelle Delaere (University College Ghent / Ghent University, Belgium)
Marie-Aude Lefer (Institut libre Marie Haps, Brussels, Belgium)
