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.

Book Information


Title: Las antologías sobre la traducción en el ámbito peninsular
Subtitle: Análisis y estudio
Written By: José Antonio Sabio Pinilla
Pilar Ordóñez López
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?430606
Series Title: Relaciones literarias en el Ambito Hispanico - Volume 6

Este libro está dedicado al análisis y estudio de quince antologías sobre
la traducción aparecidas en el ámbito peninsular durante los últimos
veinticinco años. Las antologías permiten asomarse a la tradición gracias a
la (re)escritura que proponen los antólogos. Junto a la idea de tradición,
tres son los conceptos que articulan esta obra: antología - entendida como
un tipo de obra histórica que recopila y selecciona textos canónicos o
considerados dignos de ser conocidos en el discurso teórico sobre la
traducción -, historia de la traducción - rama de los Estudios de
Traducción que se ocupa del pasado de la disciplina - y espacio peninsular
- marco geográfico, lingüístico y cultural donde profundizar en el fenómeno
antológico de la traducción. Estas obras han de entenderse dentro del
contexto académico y cultural peninsular: además de las antologías de
carácter universal, sobresale el estudio de las tradiciones de las lenguas
peninsulares, castellano, catalán, gallego y portugués, lo que ha permitido
contar con un corpus de textos muy amplio donde se plantean cuestiones que
hoy día siguen siendo discutidas.
