Interpreting Studies: Approaching language usage from a remote corner of the universe - Speaker: Bart Defrancq

Language corpora have been crucial for the study of language usage and variation. Similarly, translation corpora have informed us about the specific language variety of translations, variously called translationese, the third code, interlanguage, etc. However, corpora of interpreting have comparatively contributed fairly little to the study of spoken varieties. I will review attempts that have been made and suggest some new avenues of research into the remote corners of the universe of constrained language.
