Title: Comparative Stylistics of French and English
Written By: Jean Darbelnet
Jean-Paul Vinay
Edited By: Marie-Josée Hamel
Juan C Sager
Series Title: Benjamins Translation Library
Description:

Over the last 37 years the Stylistique comparee du francais et de l'anglais has become a standard text in the French-speaking world for the study of comparative stylistics and the training of translators. This updated, first English edition makes Vinay & Darbelnet's classic methodology of translation available to a wider readership. The translation-oriented contrastive grammatical and stylistic analyses of the two languages is extensively exemplified by expressions, phrases and whole texts. Combining description with methodological guidelines for translation, it serves both as a course book and - through its detailed index and glossary - as a reference manual for specific translation problems.
