Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review

Abstract

Brian Friel’s concern about the role and the value of the act of translation certainly reminds the reader of James Joyce’s famous words on the cultural – and most of all linguistic – differences between the protagonist of his book and the English headmaster of the school he works at.The present contribution aims at offering a comparative analysis of some of the Italian translations of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man through a corpus-based approach.Corpora can be used in a classroom of EFL or of Translation Studies, to draw students’ attention towards the various translation strategies and the linguistic information useful in translation and learning process. For such reasons, I intend to show how corpora can aid the learning and understanding of English as a foreign language, making students more autonomous and free to take responsibility for their own learning by looking at aspects such as verb use; lexical contrast (wordlists); syntax (collocates and collocations); clause structure; clause boundaries and cohesion; varieties of English (Irish English) as well as translation strategies.
