Abstract:

Translations of Cervantes' Don Quijote (1605) take pride of place among
foreign literature in China. Despite the contrasts between the two cultures
and the passage of four centuries the adventures and misadventures of the
Castilian hero have always been popular with Chinese readers.
In this book a corpus-based stylistic study is used to explore two
contemporary Mandarin Chinese translations of Don Quijote: those by Yang
Jiang (1978) and Liu Jingsheng (1995). Utilising a micro-structural
perspective this study suggests explanations for the surprising popularity
of Don Quijote in China.

Contents:
- Construction of a Parallel Corpus of Don Quijote
- Corpus Data Retrieval and Annotation
- Phraseological Patterns in Yang's Translation
- Phraseological Patterns in Liu's Translation
- Use of Figurative/Archaic Idioms in the Two Translations
- Quantitative Exploration of Style Variation in Liu's Translation.

The Author: Meng Ji has a Ph.D. from Imperial College London (2009) within
the area of corpus-based translation studies focused on the study of
phraseology in literary translations into Chinese. She is presently
developing an interdisciplinary approach to corpus-based translation
studies by integrating methodologies from disciplines including textual
statistics, quantitative sociolinguistics and computational stylometry.
