Linguistic Approaches 1: Foundations • Beginnings: Saussure’s sign • Jakobson and equivalent messages • Translation as transfer • Textual equivalence and translation shifts • Natural and directional equivalence Denotation and Connotation • Denotation = concept referred to sound sequence (i.e. signifier) • Connotation = meaning attached to that concept culturally (Fawcett 1997: 23-25) • Connotations differ from language to language • Are connotations untranslatable? Jakobson’s three types of translation • Intralingual or rewording • Interlingual or translation proper • Intersemiotic or transmutation (Jakobson 2004: 139) ‘translation from one language into another substitutes messages in one language not for separate code-units but for entire messages in some other language. Such a translation is reported speech; the translator recodes and transmits a message received from another source. Thus translation involves two equivalent messages in two different codes.’ (Jakobson 2004: 139) Parts of Meaning • Linguistic Meaning • Referential Meaning • Emotive Meaning – Nida 1964: 30-119 Jonathan Evans 8 Linguistic meaning • ‘Bill is eating a chicken’ • ‘A chicken is being eaten by Bill’
