Through extensive analysis of examples in German and English, the
author demonstrates how analogous options of sentence structure must
be surrendered in order to achieve felicitous translations. Two major
aspects that determine the appropriateness of language use are
examined: language processing and discourse-dependency. Essential
reading for translation scholars and linguists involved in the
comparative study of English and German, this book will also be of
interest to scholars of psycholinguistics and cognitive science, as
well as translators and linguists.
