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: Research Methods in Interpreting
Subtitle: A Practical Resource
Written By: Sandra Beatriz Hale
Jemina M. Napier
URL: http://bloomsbury.com/uk/research-methods-in-interpreting-9781441147707/
Series Title: Research Methods in Linguistics
Description:

This is the first book to deliver a comprehensive guide to research methods in all types of interpreting. It brings together the expertise of two world-recognized scholars in spoken and signed language interpreting to cover the full scope of the discipline.

It features questions, prompts and exercises throughout to highlight key concepts, provoke thought and encourage reader interaction. It deals fully with research in both conference and community interpreting, offering a variety of perspectives on both. Core areas such as reading and analyzing research literature, practical issues in research and producing research reports are all covered. This book is an indispensable tool for students and researchers of Interpreting as well as professionals and interpreter trainers.

“In a field so reliant on empirical studies using a range of methodological approaches, this timely book offers much-needed and eminently user-oriented guidance. Hale and Napier excel in combining a well-founded presentation of key concepts and techniques in empirical research with illustrative hands-on instruction. Rich in up-to-date sources and relevant examples, this volume is an invaluable asset to novice researchers and to the interpreting studies community at large.” – Franz Pöchhacker, Associate Professor of Interpreting Studies, University of Vienna, Austria,

“This is a wonderful addition to the field of interpretation, offering structure and insight into the research methodologies that are available to researchers working with spoken and signed language interpreting. It also demystifies the research process by providing examples that are not only relevant, but that lead the reader to further sources of inspiration and knowledge. Napier and Hale have produced an excellent resource for emerging researchers, and our communities of practice will be the better for having this text.” – Debra Russell, David Peikoff Chair of Deaf Studies, University of Alberta, Canada,
