Toury, Gideon. 1981. Contrastive linguistics and Translation Studies: toward a tripartite model.


The article discusses the crucial role polysystems play when we try to explain different types of translation and the historical nature of this activity. The essay argues that while comparative linguistics is needed for the analysis of translations, it is no substitute for an autonomous translation theory.
