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: Fraseología, Opacidad y Traducción
Edited By: Pedro Mogorrón Huerta
Daniel Gallego Hernández
Paola Masseau
Miguel Tolosa Igualada
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?262572
Series Title: Studien zur romanischen Sprachwissenschaft und interkulturellen Kommunikation - Band 86
Description:

La opacidad en fraseología puede surgir a través de un complejo entramado de factores en los que pueden intervenir elementos tan diferentes como la polisemia, las referencias culturales, las referencias históricas, la presencia de metáforas, la escasa competencia fraseológica de los usuarios tanto en la lengua general como especializada y muchos temas más. Por todo ello, la combinación de los tres términos que componen el título de esta obra representa sin lugar a dudas una de las dificultades más complejas con las que tiene que lidiar el traductor, en la búsqueda de la equivalencia, en el trascurso de su profesión. En efecto, si la traducción debe ofrecer equivalentes de significado que se aproximen lo más posible a los mensajes del texto meta, conviene subrayar que en la actualidad, los estudios traductológicos se apoyan en aproximaciones pragmáticas que tienen en cuenta, las situaciones de comunicación, los factores sociales y los contenidos interculturales. Los investigadores participantes de esta publicación ofrecen un nutrido y variado abanico de artículos relacionados con la fraseología, la opacidad y sus soluciones traductológicas.
