Translating as a Purposeful Activity - Functionalist Approaches Explained (Paperback): Christiane Nord Translating as a Purposeful Activity - Functionalist Approaches Explained (Paperback)
Christiane Nord
R324 Discovery Miles 3 240 Within 4 - 8 working days

German-language approaches to translation have been revolutionized by the theory of action (Handlungstheorie) and the related theory of translation's goal or purpose (Skopstheorie). Both these approaches are functionalist: they seek to liberate translators from servitude to the source text, seeing translation as a new communicative act that must be purposeful with respect to the translator's client and readership. As one of the leading figures in this field, Christiane Nord gives the first full survey of functionalist approaches in English. She explains the complexities of the theories and their terms, using simple language with numerous examples. The book includes an overview of how the theories developed, illustrations of the main ideas, and specific applications to translator training, literary translation, interpreting and ethics. The survey concludes with a concise review of the criticisms that have been made of the theories, together with perspectives for the future development of functionalist approaches.

Afrikaans is die grootste nie-rassige prestasie in ons Suiderland sover. Gesamentlik geskep deur mense van drie vastelande – Afrika, Asi en Europa. En daarom is dit nie die besit van eensydige politieke partye nie, maar behoort dit aan almal wat dit praat, skryf en liefhet. En daarom ook is my taal my beste wapen teen rassisme. (Jan Rabie, 1992)

Hierdie uitspraak van die Afrikaanse skrywer Jan Rabie dien as die uitgangspunt van hierdie opwindende nuwe boek oor Afrikaans. Afrikaans is oor die afgelope drie eeue al baie dinge genoem: die jongste Germaanse taal n Afrikataal, kombuistaal n parlementstaal, witmanstaal n hotnotstaal, onderdrukkerstaal n bevrydingstaal, Christentaal n Moslemtaal, elitistiese taal n omgangstaal, plat taal n potiese taal.

In hierdie “storie van Afrikaans” word ’n bondige oorsig gegee van waar Afrikaans vandaan kom, wie hom praat, skryf, gebruik en misbruik. In tye van voorspoed n van teenspoed het Afrikaans bewys dat hy ’n lewenskragtige, skeppende en bowenal nuttige taal is.

Dit kouboe die taal vir oueres wat daarmee vertroud is en vir jongeres is dit brandhout om vir die oudag bymekaar te maak.

Wat praat jy! bevat meer as 20 000 Afrikaanse gesegdes, vaste uitdrukkings en idiome. Hierdie vaste uitdrukkings, gesegdes en idiome word met 'n eenvoudige voorbeeldsin verklaar. Dit word verder toegelig deur aan te dui van watter taal die uitdrukking of woord afkomstig is. C.J. Langenhoven het 'n groot bydrae tot die Afrikaanse kultuurskat gemaak en De Wet toon ook aan wanneer 'n uitdrukking van hom afkomstig is. Heelwat spreekwoorde is afkomstig van die Bybel. Wat praat jy! is 'n besondere naslaanwerk. Johanna de Wet het na haar aftrede as onderwyseres in 1996 'n doktorsgraad in die psigo-pedagogiek behaal.

Sy woon steeds op Hoopstad waar sy haar aan haar skryfwerk wy.

A masterclass in persuasion from the inspiring philosopher who has taught a million people to argue through his popular open online course Our personal and political worlds are rife with arguments and disagreements, some of them petty and vitriolic. The inability to compromise and understand the other side is widespread today. What can we do to change this? In Think Again philosopher Walter Sinnott-Armstrong draws on a long tradition of logic to show why we should stop focusing on winning arguments and instead argue in a more constructive way. Based on a hugely popular online course with more than a million followers around the world, Think Again explains how to analyse, evaluate and make better arguments while also spotting bad reasoning and avoiding certain fallacies. Through lively, practical examples from everyday life, politics and popular culture, Walter Sinnott-Armstrong offers brilliantly straightforward, wise advice that we can all use at work, at home and online.

Language is a wild animal: rough, ambiguous, inconsistent in countless ways. But that just makes it all the more tempting to tame it. Many have tried, from sticklers for supposedly correct grammar to inventors of supposedly perfect languages; from software engineers working on machine translation to governments that see language management as politics by another means. But when you enter the lair of a wild beast, you can be lucky to escape with your wits.

Join Lane Greene on a journey of discovery into the deep strangeness of language. Learn why grammar rules can never capture the extraordinary variety of ordinary usage. See what happens when you try to design a language that really makes sense. Find out why, for all the talk of decline in English, no language in recorded history has ever gone to the dogs, or ever could. And learn the fate of those bold individuals who, through heroism or ignorance, ventured to teach their tongue some new tricks.

As the title suggests, 'Motherfocloir' takes an irreverent, pun-friendly and contemporary approach to the Irish language. The translations are expanded on and arranged into broad categories that allow interesting connections to be made, and sprinkled with anecdotes and observations about Irish and Ireland itself, as well as language in general. The author includes stories about his own relationship with Irish, and how it fits in with the most important events in his life. This is a book for all lovers of the quirks of language.
