Dissertation Abstract:

This study investigates the process of summary translation by means of an
experimental study which draws on the production of six Brazilian PhD
students, who produced summaries from an English text into Portuguese. Data
was collected by means of Translog online protocols, retrospective induced
verbal protocols, video recordings, and questionnaires. The main
theoretical framework builds on theories of English Teaching for Academic
Purposes; CARS Model for Article Introductions; Summary Translation;
Connectionism and Parallel Distribution Processing (PDP); Production phases
- orientation, drafting and revising; Cognitive Rhythm; Durability;
Deliberate Practice, Expertise, and Summary Production. The data was
analyzed under a qualitative paradigm focusing punctual and deeply on
specific features and variables that affect the process of summary
translation and possible implications for an expert performance. The
results suggest that durability is intimately connected to time management,
to the use of pause, used for cognitive processing inherent to summary
translation, to the use of oriented strategies and decision making. The
data reveal that summary translation taken as process can be comprehended
when it is considered as a continuum with a subject and two texts involved.
The process can only exist when it is seen as a social discursive cognitive
and cultural phenomenon. It is viable to propose a new paradigm to deal
with summary production, under a discoursive and cognitive perspective. By
investigating the cognitive processes involved in summary translation, this
thesis hopes to contribute, within short and long period of time, to
research in foreign language reading skills acquisition and suggest new
directions to: (a) English for Academic Purposes teaching; (b) translation
studies; (c) summary translation studies; (d) Teaching English as a Foreign
Language (in Brazil); and (e) L1 teaching and learning.
