Title: Breaking Ground in Corpus-based Interpreting Studies
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?431071
Series Title: Linguistic Insights - Volume 147
Description:

This book focuses on interpretation corpora which is one of the major
subjects of research in interpreting studies. It explores key issues such as
corpus design and representativeness, as well as aims and challenges of the
application of corpus-linguistics principles and methods to interpreting.
Interpreting corpora represent a real challenge because of the very nature of
the items they are composed of. The oral dimension, the unavoidable stage
of transcription and the difficulties in relying on authentic data are only some
of the aspects that make the creation of interpreting corpora a complex,
challenging and time-consuming activity. The book discusses the theoretical
problems and presents the working phases leading to the collection of five
different interpreting corpora. The variety of approaches adopted by each
research team highlights the fact that aims, interrogation methods and corpus
design are intertwined. A survey of the studies carried out so far using these
five interpreting corpora identifies data comparability as the core issue of
corpus-based interpreting studies.
