The translator’s visibility. Translators’ critical argumentation on their translating effort

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


At the atypical intrapersonal monological level, this paper explores critical argumentations in contemporary translators’ notes of literary texts, in which translators both reveal the richness of their encounter with literary masterpieces and provide reflections on their translating practice. Using the general framework of a Pragma-Dialectical standpoint, the study aims to investigate the argumentative structures, argument schemes, and linguistic markers used by translators to explain the cultural-linguistic constraints they have to address in their work.
