By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Theatrical Translation and Film Adaptation
Subtitle: A Practitioner's View
Written By: Phyllis Zatlin
Series Title: Topics in Translation

Translation and film adaptation of theatre have received little study. In
filling that gap, this book draws on the experiences of theatrical
translators and on movie versions of plays from various countries. It also
offers insights into such concerns as the translation of bilingual plays
and the choice between subtitling and dubbing of film.
