Composición del inglés


Sirc, G. (2002). [e-Book]  English Composition As A Happening. Utah, Utah State University Press, 2002.

Texto completo


What happened to the bold, kicky promise of writing instruction in the 1960s? The current conservative trend in composition is analyzed allegorically by Geoffrey Sirc in this book-length homage to Charles Deemer’s 1967 article, in which the theories and practices of Happenings artists (multi-disciplinary performance pioneers) were used to invigorate college writing. Sirc takes up Deemer’s inquiry, moving through the material and theoretical concerns of such pre- and post-Happenings influences as Duchamp and Pollock, situationists and punks, as well as many of the Happenings artists proper. With this book, already a cult classic, began a neo-avant-garde for composition studies.Winner of the Ross W. Winterowd Award for most outstanding book in composition theory.

Texto completo


Cet ouvrage sonde deux grands types de transfert interlinguistique : la traduction professionnelle, enseignée dans les écoles et instituts de formation de traducteurs, et la traduction didactique, pratiquée en enseignement des langues. Les auteurs des textes réunis ici, tous des pédagogues d’expérience, tentent de répondre à quelques-unes des questions fondamentales du domaine : En quoi l’enseignement de la traduction professionnelle se distingue-t-il des exercices de traduction didactique ? Comment enseigner à bien comprendre les textes avant de les traduire ? Comment convient-il d’évaluer les traductions ? La puissance d’Internet peut-elle être mise au service de l’enseignement de la traduction ? Quel métalangage utilise-t-on dans les cours de traduction ? Pourquoi est-il important d’inculquer aux étudiants des habitudes dénominatives ? L’introspection à haute voix (think-aloud protocols) peut-elle contribuer à améliorer la pédagogie de la traduction ? Autant de questions qui trouvent dans ce collectif des éléments de réponse propres à faire progresser la pédagogie de la traduction à stimuler la recherche.

Planificar el futuro de la historia de la traducción



Bandia, P. F. and G. L. Bastin. [e-Book]  Charting the Future of Translation History. Ottawa, University of Ottawa Press, 2006.

Texto completo


Over the last 30 years there has been a substantial increase in the study of the history of translation. Both well-known and lesser-known specialists in translation studies have worked tirelessly to give the history of translation its rightful place. Clearly, progress has been made, and the history of translation has become a viable independent research area.This book aims at claiming such autonomy for the field with a renewed vigour. It seeks to explore issues related to methodology as well as a variety of discourses on history with a view to laying the groundwork for new avenues, new models, new methods. It aspires to challenge existing theoretical and ideological frameworks. It looks toward the future of history. It is an attempt to address shortcomings that have prevented translation history from reaching its full disciplinary potential. From microhistory, archaeology, periodization, to issues of subjectivity and postmodernism, methodological lacunae are being filled.Contributors to this volume go far beyond the text to uncover the role translation has played in many different times and settings such as Europe, Africa, Latin America, the Middle-east and Asia from the 6th century to the 20th. These contributions, which deal variously with the discourses on methodology and history, recast the discipline of translation history in a new light and pave the way to the future of research and teaching in the field.

El estudio de la relación entre lengua y Tecnologías de la Información y las Comunicaciones apenas dispone de bagaje en la literatura económica. En este libro se ha optado por profundizar en dos aspectos: por un lado, el análisis de la presencia de las distintas lenguas en Internet y su relación con el desarrollo de la Sociedad de la Información en los países en los que éstas son habladas; por otro, el examen de la posible existencia de vínculos lingüísticos en el patrón geográfico de internacionalización de las operadoras de telecomunicaciones

Las lenguas del patrimonio germánico en América del Norte: adquisición, desgaste y cambio



Janne Bondi, J. and C. S. Joseph (2015). [e-Book]  Germanic Heritage Languages in North America: Acquisition, attrition and change. Amsterdam, John Benjamins Publishing Company

Texto completo


This book presents new empirical findings about Germanic heritage varieties spoken in North America: Dutch, German, Pennsylvania Dutch, Icelandic, Norwegian, Swedish, West Frisian and Yiddish, and varieties of English spoken both by heritage speakers and in communities after language shift. The volume focuses on three critical issues underlying the notion of ‘heritage language’: acquisition, attrition and change. The book offers theoretically-informed discussions of heritage language processes across phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics and the lexicon, in addition to work on sociolinguistics, historical linguistics and contact settings. With this, the volume also includes a variety of frameworks and approaches, synchronic and diachronic. Most European Germanic languages share some central linguistic features, such as V2, gender and agreement in the nominal system, and verb inflection. As minority languages faced with a majority language like English, similarities and differences emerge in patterns of variation and change in these heritage languages. These empirical findings shed new light on mechanisms and processes.
