The Routledge Handbook of Translation Studies and Linguistics explores the interrelationships between Translation Studies and Linguistics in six sections of state-of-the-art chapters, written by leading specialists from around the world. The first part, on the nature of language, translation and interpreting, begins by addressing the relationships between translation studies and linguistics as major topics of study in themselves before focusing, in individual chapters, on the relationships between translation on the one hand and semantics, semiotics and the sound system of language on the other. Part II is concerned with the nature of meaning and the ways in which meaning can be shared or semi-shared in texts pairs that are related to each other as first-written texts and their translations, while Part III focuses on relationships between translation and interpreting and the written and spoken word. In part IV, the users of language, and language in use in situations involving more than one language are covered, and in Part V technological tools that can assist language users are brought onto the scene. Finally, Part VI presents chapters on the links between areas of applied linguistics and translation and interpreting. With an introduction by the editor and an extensive bibliography, this handbook is an indispensable resource for advanced students of translation studies, interpreting studies and applied linguistics.
