This paper tries to map patterns of deviation, actual or expected, in translated texts, as a possible method to circumvent the epistemological limitations of one-to-one (language-to-language or text-to-text) comparisons. An experiment on the rhetorical use of metonymies and enthymemes within persuasive discourse in English and Spanish is debated.
