Title: Language Processing in Discourse
Subtitle: A Key to Felicitous Translation
Written By: Monika Doherty
Series Title: Routledge Studies in Germanic Linguistics

Through extensive analysis of examples in German and
English, the author demonstrates how analogous options of sentence structure must be surrendered in order to achieve felicitous translations. Two major aspects that determine the appropriateness of language use are examined: language processing and discourse-dependency. Essential reading for translation scholars and linguists involved in the comparative study of English and German, this book will also be of interest to scholars of psycholinguistics and cognitive science, as well as translators and linguists.
