Call Deadline: 20-Mar-2015

Meeting Description:

This session is devoted to language/information processing in translation where translation is understood in Jakobson’s (1959) broad sense as the interlingual, intralingual and intersemiotic transfer of meaning from one form into another. Although the role of linguistic mediation has been recognised in todays’ multilingual and multicultural communities, unravelling the computational procedures that enable the human mind to transfer meaning from one form into another are still a challenge for Translation Process Research (TPR).

Call for Papers:

We welcome papers which report on empirical studies, especially those which employ new research tools including key-logging and eye-tracking to capture language processing aimed at linguistic mediation. We also invite speakers with more theoretical approaches, and especially those with a background in cognitive linguistics who are able to provide arguments that TPR is able to contribute to an increased understanding of linguistic concepts.
