Abstract:

This book focuses on the translation of English academic texts into German,
closely analysing the structural and discourse properties of original
sentences and their possible translations. It consists of six chapters,
with more than a hundred carefully discussed examples, and presents the
author's results of a series of research projects which have successively
dealt with the typologically determined conditions for
discourse-appropriate uses of word order, case, voice (perspective) and
structural explicitness in simple and complex sentences or sequences of
sentences.

The theoretical and methodological assumptions of the book follow a
basically generative approach in studying the interaction between
semantic-pragmatic and phonological-syntactic properties of the linguistic
forms as they are involved in the perception of written language. The
linguistic and psycholinguistic models accessed are also introduced in
detail to promote comprehension for the interested reader with an
alternative theoretical background, whether scholar, student or translator.
