Exploring Explicitation and Implicitation in Parallel Interpreting and Translation Corpora

The Prague Bulletin of Mathematical Linguistics, 119, pp. 5-22, 2022, ISSN 0032-6585.

We present a study of discourse connectives in English-German and German-English translation and interpreting where we focus on the phenomena of explicitation and implicitation.
Apart from distributional analysis of translation patterns in parallel data, we also look into surprisal, i.e. an information-theoretic measure of cognitive effort, which helps us to interpret the observed tendencies.
