After the many interdisciplinary perspectives on nonverbal communication
offered by the author in his previous seven John Benjamins books, which
have generated a wide range of scholarly applications, the present
monograph is dominated by a very broad concept of translation. This
treatment of translation includes theater and cinema (enriching our
intellectual-sensorial experience of both 'reading act' and 'viewing act')
and offers among other topics: sensorial-intellectual-emotional pre-
and post-reading interactions with books; mute or audible 'oralization' of
texts; the translator's linguistic and nonverbal-cultural fluency and
implicit textual paralanguage and kinesics; translating functions of
pictorial illustrations; the blind's text and film perception; the foreign
reader's cultural background and circumstances; theater and cinema
spectators' total sensory-intellectual experience of plays and films beyond
staging or projection; the multiple interrelationships between cinema and
theater performers, spectators and their environments, of special interest
to all those involved in the theater; and the translator's challenging
textual perception of sounds and movements. Over 800 literary quotations,
and two virtually exhaustive English inventories of sound- and
movement-denoting words with many examples, offer serious students of
translation, language or literature a rich reference and drill source.
