Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Doubts and Directions in Translation Studies

Series Title: Benjamins Translation Library 72
Description:

Like previous collections based on congresses of the European Society of
Translation Studies (EST), this volume presents the latest insights and
findings in an ever-changing, ever-challenging domain. The twenty-six
papers, carefully chosen from about 140 presented at the 4th EST Congress,
offer a bird's eye view of the most pressing concerns and most exciting
vistas in Translation Studies today. The editors' final choices reflect a
focus on quality of approach, originality of topic, and clarity of
presentation, and aim at capturing the most salient developments in the
contemporary theory, methodology and technology of TS. As always in EST,
the themes covered relate to translation as well as interpreting. They
include discussion of a broad range of text-types and skopoi, and a
diversity of themes, such as translation universals, translation
strategies, translation and ideology, perception of translated humor,
translation tools, etc. Many of the papers force us to take a fresh look at
seemingly well established paradigms and familiar notions, while also
making recourse to work being done in other disciplines (Semiotics,
Linguistics, Discourse Analysis, Contrastive Studies).
