Short Description:

The objective of this course is, on the one hand, to familiarize students with the theoretical approaches of linguists and translation specialists on the relationship between linguistics and translation and on the other hand, to form their own opinion about the contribution of linguistics to translation and vice versa through small research projects. For this purpose, we study linguistic approaches to translation proposed by comparative linguistics, sociolinguistics, and text-linguistics.
