Die amerikanische Bestsellerautorin Jhumpa Lahiri («Das Tiefland», «Einmal im Leben») hat ein gewagtes Experiment unternommen. Als Sprecherin zweier Sprachen, Englisch und Bengalisch, machte sie sich auf, eine dritte so gut zu lernen, dass sie sie nicht nur fließend sprechen, sondern sogar darin schreiben konnte: das Italienische. Dies ist die Geschichte eines kulturellen und linguistischen Abenteuers. Mit zwei Sprachen wuchs Jhumpa Lahiri auf: In der Familie wurde Bengalisch gesprochen, Lesen und Schreiben lernte sie auf Englisch in den USA. In beiden Sprachen fühlte sie sich nie ganz beheimatet. Doch dann, während einer Florenzreise 1994 – eine jähe, wilde Affäre mit dem Italienischen, einer Sprache, die neue Freiheit, Abenteuer und Unabhängigkeit verhieß. Doch gleich wurden die jungen Liebenden wieder getrennt: Lahiri kehrte zurück nach New York, und jahrelang hielten nur ein kleines Lexikon in ihrer Handtasche sowie der knappen Lebenszeit abgerungene Privatstunden bei wechselnden Lehrerinnen die Flamme am Brennen. Bis sie 2013 – ihr Leben als freie Schriftstellerin machte es möglich – Hals über Kopf mit der gesamten Familie nach Rom zog. Und nun wurde aus Leidenschaft Lebensernst ... Dies ist ein sehr persönliches Buch, die präzise Auseinandersetzung einer Schriftstellerin mit einer Fremdsprache, die langsam zur eigenen Sprache wird, und mit einem Land, das ihre neue Heimat werden soll. Italien! Rom! Die Geschichte! Die Lebensart! Zugleich berührt es große Fragen: Heimat, Identität, was ist das überhaupt, woraus entsteht es? Lahiri tauchte so tief in die Fremdheit der neuen Sprache und Kultur ein, bis sie in der Lage war, ihr erstes Buch auf Italienisch zu schreiben. Hier ist es – im tiefsten Sinne des Wortes eine Liebesgeschichte.

Variation in Reference and Narrative

What we say always consists of prior words, structures and meanings that are combined in new ways and re-used in new contexts for new listeners. In this book, Deborah Schiffrin looks at two important tasks of language - presenting 'who' we are talking about (the referent) and 'what happened' to them (their actions and attributes) in a narrative - and explores how this presentation alters in relation to emergent forms and meanings. Drawing on examples from both face-to-face talk and public discourse, she analyses a variety of repairs, reformulations of referents, and retellings of narratives, ranging from word-level repairs within a single turn-at-talk, to life story narratives told years apart. Bringing together work from conversation analysis, interactional sociolinguistics, cognitive semantics, pragmatics, and variation analysis, In Other Words will be invaluable for scholars wishing to understand the many different factors that underlie the shaping and re-shaping of discourse over time, place and person.

ISBN: 1317213173

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 370

In Other Words has been the definitive coursebook for students studying translation for nearly three decades. Assuming no knowledge of foreign languages, it offers a practical guide based on extensive research in areas as varied as lexis, grammar, pragmatics, semiotics and ethics. It thus provides a solid basis for training a new generation of well-informed, critical students of translation. Drawing on linguistic theory and social semiotics, the third edition of this best-selling text guides trainee translators through the variety of decisions they will have to make throughout their career. Each chapter offers an explanation of key concepts, identifies potential sources of translation difficulties related to those concepts and illustrates various strategies for resolving these difficulties. Authentic examples of translated texts from a wide variety of languages and genres are examined, and practical exercises and further reading are included at the end of each chapter. The third edition has been fully revised to reflect recent developments in the field and includes a new chapter that engages with the interplay between verbal and visual elements in genres as varied as children’s literature, comics, film, poetry and advertisements. This key text remains the essential coursebook for any student of translation studies.

A Language Lover's Guide to the Most Intriguing Words Around the World

When ideas fail, words come in handy. But sometimes you can't find the right word, and what you want to say can't be found in the dictionary. English has its limitations, but the expression you're searching for may exist in another language. In Other Words is a unique collection of well-known and absolutely obscure "untranslatables"-linguistic gems that convey a feeling or notion with satisfying precision yet resist simple translation. This quirky lexicon of hard-to-translate words gives the reader a new way to look at the world and how words relate to us. The words are arranged by region or country of origin, and a brief introduction to each section-each done by a respected translator-gives insight into the culture of the people as well as the language. Each of these singular words is cleverly and thoroughly defined, with interesting details and references throughout. The search for that elusive mot juste may be over.

Essays Towards a Reflexive Sociology

Author: Pierre Bourdieu

Publisher: Stanford University Press

ISBN: 9780804717250

Category: Social Science

Page: 223

Pierre Bourdieu is one of the most protean intellectual forces in comtemporary French thought. He holds the chair in sociology at the prestigious Collège de France, yet his influence extends far beyond the area of sociological research and theory. Bourdieu's work, presented in over twenty books, lies on the borders of philosophy, anthropology and ethnology, and cultural theory. The present volume consists of diverse individual texts, produced between 1980 and 1986, which take two forms: interviews in which Bourdieu confronts a series of probing and intelligent interviewers, and conference papers that clarify and extend specific areas of his current research. Now that Bourdieu's work has achieved wide diffusion and celebrity, this is an appropriate time for this volume, a pause for retrospection and resynthesis, for correction of misreadings and extension of previous insights, and for projection of the next stages of his work. For this English edition, Bourdieu's celebrated inaugural lecture at the Collège de France, Leçon sur la Leçon, has been added. Because of the verve and clarity of Bourdieu's arguments in this book, it is a very readable and concise introduction to his work.

In Other Words is a revelation. It is at heart a love story of a long and sometimes difficult courtship, and a passion that verges on obsession: that of a writer for another language. For Jhumpa Lahiri, that love was for Italian, which first captivated and capsized her during a trip to Florence after college. Although Lahiri studied Italian for many years afterwards, true mastery had always eluded her. Seeking full immersion, she decided to move to Rome with her family, for 'a trial by fire, a sort of baptism' into a new language and world. There, she began to read and to write – initially in her journal – solely in Italian. In Other Words, an autobiographical work written in Italian, investigates the process of learning to express oneself in another language, and describes the journey of a writer seeking a new voice. Presented in a dual-language format, this is a wholly original book about exile, linguistic and otherwise, written with an intensity and clarity not seen since Vladimir Nabokov: a startling act of self-reflection and a provocative exploration of belonging and reinvention.

Incarnational Translation for Preaching

Author: Charles H. Cosgrove,W. Dow Edgerton

Publisher: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing

ISBN: 080284037X

Category: Religion

Page: 232

View: 2012

Foreword by Don Wardlaw This exceptional book by Charles Cosgrove and Dow Edgerton will be a rich resource for pastors wanting to reach their congregations in a fresh way. Rather than discussing preaching in general or even a specific approach to preaching, it focuses on a new way of engaging the biblical text for preaching. In Other Words combines Cosgrove and Edgerton's critical acumen, creative imagination, and pastoral discernment to present contemporizing restatements of Scripture, speaking timeless truths in modern speech. In describing their "incarnational translation," the authors invite readers to imagine what the text might have looked like if produced in the preacher's own culture, time, and place. Drawing on translation theory, genre studies, and recent hermeneutical theory, they offer both a comprehensive theory of incarnational translation and a set of specific guidelines and examples for carrying it out.

She says, "When I grow up I want to be a Jester. I make no apologies for my love of wit and rhyme; they're the tools of the Jester's lost art. I want to express passion and explore universal themes in such a way as to reach those who don't like poetry'. I hope my work will be enjoyed by those who feel excluded' by the High Art reputation of poetry. If I can bring them food for thought, laughter and maybe even some solace, it'd be great." "My verse comes from who knows where?'. It's dictated to me in the very early morning and in a half- sleep half- waking state I scribble it down. Since I hear' it before I see it written, I guess it's best read aloud."

In Other Words - a hilarious book of verse, anecdotes and memories by John Mortimer From one of Britain's greatest ever raconteurs, these are the stories with which John Mortimer entertained the nation for years: of seedy criminals and the even seedier criminal justice system, of boyhood and his remarkable father, of passion and politics, and most of all English eccentrics from Lord Byron to the present day. Along the way, we meet a motley crew of failed murderers, remorseful drunkards, unrepentant adulterers and cantankerous judges. And interspersed among these humorous vignettes is a wonderful selection of English (and some American) poetry, which beautifully complements the stories. In Other Words is the record of an extraordinary life lived in law and literature, and a story of England and Englishness. If you like P.G. Wodehouse you will love this book. Sir John Mortimer was a barrister, playwright and novelist. His fictional trilogy about the inexorable rise of an ambitious Tory MP in the Thatcher years (Paradise Postponed, Titmuss Regained and The Sound of Trumpets) has recently been republished in Penguin Classics, together with Clinging to the Wreckage and his play A Voyage round My Father. His most famous creation was the barrister Horace Rumpole, who featured in four novels and around eighty short stories. His books in Penguin include: The Anti-social Behaviour of Horace Rumpole; The Collected Stories of Rumpole; The First Rumpole Omnibus; Rumpole and the Angel of Death; Rumpole and the Penge Bungalow Murders; Rumpole and the Primrose Path; Rumpole and the Reign of Terror; Rumpole and the Younger Generation; Rumpole at Christmas; Rumpole Rests His Case; The Second Rumpole Omnibus; Forever Rumpole; In Other Words; Quite Honestly and Summer's Lease.
