Edited by Kairong Xiao and Sandra L. Halverson

Special issue of Cognitive Linguistic Studies 8:2 (2021) vi, 278 pp.
Subjects Cognition and language | Cognitive linguistics | Cognitive psychology | Neurolinguistics | Psycholinguistics


Inspired by Henriksen (2007), this article investigates some key characteristics of formulaic interpreting, understood as the recurrent use of linguistic formulae in interpreted texts. Using a Chinese-English corpus of consecutive interpreting in the political setting (CICPPC), the study… read more

Investigating translation and interpreting from the perspective of a non-computational theory of cognition requires continuing development of the requisite theoretical constructs. As part of the ongoing elaboration of this alternative approach, this paper proposes the construct of ‘default… read more
Schaeffer, Moritz J., Sandra L. Halverson and Silvia Hansen-Schirra 2019 ‘Monitoring’ in translation: The role of visual feedbackTranslation, Cognition & Behavior 2:1, pp. 1–34 | Article
We assume that visual feedback from the written trace during translation plays an important role in monitoring the emerging translation. In this study, 44 participants translated with and without visual feedback from the target text (TT). Numerous measures were used to explore the differences… read more

The current reintroduction of the concept of ‘literal translation’ is an important development for two main reasons. Firstly, it has led to a range of intriguing empirical findings. Secondly, this revival exemplifies a more profound development in the field. This paper argues that the trajectory of… read more

The language sample provided by the Norwegian Newspaper Corpus (NNC) provides an appropriate corpus for the investigation of emerging uses of existent linguistic forms. A case in point is the development of new metonymical uses of place names; such uses often involve reference to events located at… read more

The work of cognitive translation scholars, while motivated by questions about translational phenomena, necessarily engages with theoretical developments in the disciplines of psycholinguistics, bilingualism, psychology, cognitive science, and second language acquisition. Developments internal to… read more

At present, there are few attempts to provide external explanations for the patterns subsumed under the heading of “translation universal”. In this paper, I discuss the possible cognitive basis for the patterns/processes that have been variously referred to as simplification/generalization,… read more

The concept of "translation" is required to carry a considerable load at several levels of inquiry. It functions as a causal element in sociological theories, and as a methodological tool, when used extensionally. Most importantly, it is the concept which in some way structures the field which we… read more
Halverson, Sandra L. 1997 The Concept of Equivalence in Translation Studies: Much Ado About Something1Target 9:2, pp. 207–233 | Article
Within translation studies, there remains a certain amount of unnecessary discord concerning the use of the equivalence concept and its relevance for translation theory. In the interest of better understanding the various points of view, it seems helpful to consider different perspectives on this… read more
