            New Empirical Perspectives on Translation and Interpreting

            New Empirical Perspectives on Translation and Interpreting (Hardback)

            Drawing on work from both eminent and emerging scholars in translation and interpreting studies, this collection offers a critical reflection on current methodological practices in these fields toward strengthening the theoretical and empirical ties between them. Methodological a...nd technological advances have pushed these respective areas of study forward in the last few decades, but advanced tools, such as eye tracking and keystroke logging, and insights from their use have often remained in isolation and not shared across disciplines. This volume explores empirical and theoretical challenges across these areas and the subsequent methodologies implemented to address them and how they might be mutually applied across translation and interpreting studies but also brought together toward a coherent empirical theory of translation and interpreting studies. Organized around three key themes-target-text orientedness, source-text orientedness, and translator/interpreter-orientedness-the book takes stock of both studies of translation and interpreting corpora and processes in an effort to answer such key questions, including: how do written translation and interpreting relate to each other? How do technological advances in these fields shape process and product? What would an empirical theory of translation and interpreting studies look like? Taken together, the collection showcases the possibilities of further dialogue around methodological practices in translation and interpreting studies and will be of interest to students and scholars in these fields.

            Corpus Perspectives on the Spoken Models used by EFL Teachers

            • Delayed Release

            Corpus Perspectives on the Spoken Models used by EFL Teachers illustrates the key principles and practical guidelines for the design and exploitation of corpora for classroom-based research. Focusing on the nature of the spoken English used by L2 teachers, which serves as an impl...icit target model for learners alongside the curriculum model, this book brings an innovative perspective to the on-going academic debate concerning the models of spoken English that are taught today. Based on research carried out in the EFL classroom in Ireland, this book: explores issues and challenges that arise from the use of `non-standard' varieties of spoken English by teachers, alongside the use of Standard British English, and examines the controversies surrounding sociolinguistic approaches to the study of variation in spoken English; combines quantitative corpus linguistic investigations with qualitative functional discourse analytic approaches from pragmatics and SLA for classroom-based research; demonstrates the ways in which changing trends and perspectives surrounding spoken English may be filtering down to the classroom level. Drawing on a corpus of 60,000 words and highlighting strategies and techniques that can be applied by researchers and teachers to their own research context, this book is key reading for all pre- and in-service teachers of EFL as well as researchers in this field.

            Communicating Identities is a book for language teachers who wish to focus on the topic of identity in the context of their classroom teaching. The book provides a set of interactive, practical activities for use in language classrooms in which students explore and communicate ab...out aspects of their identities. It is a work for teachers who wish to find out more about the topic of learner and teacher identities in the context of their own professional development. The work provides an accessible introduction to research and theory on language learner and language teacher identity. All the practical activities include a follow-on teacher reflection in which teachers explore aspects of their own identity in relation to the learner identities explored in the activities. The communicative activities concern the various facets of the students' own identities, and are practical resources that teachers can draw on to structure and guide the students' exploration of their identities. The book introduces teachers to practical steps in doing exploratory action research so that they can investigate identity systematically in their own classrooms.

            Research-Driven Pedagogy: Implications of L2A Theory and Research for the Teaching of Language Skills brings together the essentials of SLA theory, research, and L2 pedagogy. Uniquely, the design of this book helps researchers and practitioners make explicit connections between t...heory, research and practice; learn about and conduct classroom research to contribute to the relevance and applicability of SLA research; and improves current L2 curriculum and instruction in light of current theory and research. The volume offers critical reviews of the most relevant, current SLA theory and research about receptive, productive, complementary and nonverbal communication skills, as well as willingness to communicate. Each chapter is formatted to include five major topics about each language skill: (1) major theories, (2) critical reviews of salient/current, (3) commonly-used data collection and analysis techniques, (4) summary of specific pedagogical implications of pertinent research and theory, and (5) theory and research-driven scenarios/activities that can be used in teaching. A teacher or a researcher can pick any chapter in this volume to learn about the most important language skills (e.g., reading, writing, nonverbal communication), while having all-in-one place access to almost everything they would need.
