  • Is That A Fish In Your Ear - Sample

    The sample was all too short, a good sign the rest of the book promises to interest and entertain. Bellos explains how this book is not merely to be a manual on the 'best' way to translate, (a veritable minefield in and of itself), but rather will open up varied, deeper discourses for the reader, for instance into the questions and difficulties which arise when one even begins to attempt to understand just what a translation is and what it is meant to do. Henceforth, how can we translate? Transforming intangible, internal thought processes and ideas from one person to another within a common language is sufficiently complex, particularly as we do not consciously perceive the manner in which we conjure up this first language, let alone to then throw in to the mix a whole new language, with it's own references, backgrounds, grammar, structures, inflections, social mores and words. I hope I shall be returning to complete this book very soon - despite my personal library of hundreds of other tomes I keep promising myself I must read!

    Thanks for your feedback!
