Laviosa-Braithwaite, Sara. 2004. Corpus-based Translation Studies: where does it come from? Where is it going? TradTerm 10.


In this paper the author examines the links existing between CTS, Corpus Linguistics and Descriptive Translation Studies (DTS) with a view to establishing which claims put forward in the past still hold true and which are the most fruitful areas of long-term CTS research. The paper is organised in three chronological sections, each corresponding to a salient moment in the history of CTS. The first two years 1993-1995 see the dawn of CTS, the period of time between 1996 and 1999 represents what I see as the corpus linguistic turn in Translation Studies, while from 2000 onwards it is plausible to envisage a cultural studies turn in CTS.
