Cognitive Explorations of Translation focuses on the topic of investigating translation processes from a cognitive perspective.With little published on this topic to date, Sharon O'Brien brings together a global collection of contributors coveringa range of topics.Central themes include modelling translation competence,construction and reformulation of text meaning, translators' behaviour during translation and what methodologies can best be utilized to investigate these topics.Techniques covered include eye-tracking, Think-Aloud protocols, keyboard logging and EEG (Electroencephalogram).This book will be of interest to researchers and postgraduates in translation studies and cognitive linguistics as well as practicing translators.
