Over the last 37 years the #Stylistique comparée du français et de l’anglais# has become a standard text in the French-speaking world for the study of comparative stylistics and the training of translators. This updated, first English edition makes Vinay & Darbelnet's classic methodology of translation available to a wider readership. The translation-oriented contrastive grammatical and stylistic analysis of the two languages is extensively exemplified by expressions, phrases and whole texts. Combining description with methodological guidelines for translation, it serves both as a course book and — through its index and glossary — as a reference manual for specific translation problems.
