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: Mapping the Dubbing Scene
Subtitle: Audiovisual Translation in Basque Television
Written By: Josu Barambones Zubiria
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?430281
Series Title: New Trends in Translation Studies - Volume 2
Description:

This book addresses a gap in the study of audiovisual translation (AVT)
carried out in minority languages by exploring the role played by translations
appearing on the Basque Public Broadcasting Service in the promotion and
development of the Basque language. Using the framework provided by
descriptive translation studies, the author illustrates the socio-cultural context
of AVT in the Basque Country, focusing on the dubbing from English to
Basque of television animation for children.

The most innovative aspect of the book lies in its cultural and descriptive
approach. Following a corpus-based descriptive methodology, the study
establishes a set of criteria for a contextual and linguistic analysis that
embraces both the cultural and linguistic dimensions of translation and allows
source texts to be compared with their translated versions at the macro- and
micro-structural levels. The book uniquely offers a broad overview of the
cultural context as well as a detailed analysis of the linguistic properties of
the dubbed texts.
