Translation Studies and linguistics have been going through a love--hate relationship since the 1950s. This book assesses both sides of the relationship, tracing the very real contributions that linguists have made to translation studies and at the same time recognizing the limitations of many of their approaches. With good humour and even-handedness, Fawcett describes detailed taxonomies of translation strategies and deals with traditional problems such as equivalence. Yet he also explains and assesses the more recent contributions of text linguistics, sociolinguistics, pragmatics and psycholinguistics.

This work is exceptional in that it presents theories originally produced in Russian, German, French and Spanish as well as English. Its broad coverage and accessible treatment provide essential background reading for students of translation at all levels.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The author has brought together a wealth of theoretical ideas and concepts, which are synthesized with admirable clarity, and treated thoughtfully. (Sun Yifeng, Translation Quarterly)

... essential introductory reading to novices in translation studies, but ... also a very wise choice for both translation scholars and skeptical linguistis. (Sara Oliviera, Cadernos de Traducao)
