Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: The Metalanguage of Translation
Edited By: Yves Gambier
Luc van Doorslaer
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=BCT%2020
Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 20
Description:

“Let the meta-discussion begin,” James Holmes urged in 1972. Coming almost
forty years later – years filled with fascinating and often unexpected
developments in the interdiscipline of Translation Studies – this volume
offers the reader a multiplicity of meta-perspectives, while also moving
the discussion forward. Indeed, the (re)production and (re)use of
metalinguistic metaphors frame and partly determine our views on research,
so such a discussion is vital ­as it is in any scholarly discipline. Among
other questions, the eleven contributors draw the reader's attention to the
often puzzling variations of usage and conceptualization in both the theory
and the practice of translation.

First published as a special issue of Target 19:2 (2007), the volume runs
the gamut of metalinguistic topics, ranging from terminology, localization
and epistemological questions, through the Chinese perspective, to the
conceptual mapping of the online Translation Studies Bibliography.
