Shlesinger, Miriam. 1995. Stranger in paradigms: what lies ahead for simultaneous interpreting research? In Gile, Daniel, ed. Interpreting research. Special issue of Target. International Journal on Translation Studies 7 (1): 7–28.


Simultaneous interpreting holds rich potential for research whose results may shed light not only on the workings of this composite skill itself, but also on other areas of study, including language processing, second language acquisition, mediated linguistic interaction, textlinguistics and translation theory. As more and more interpreters are university- trained, the interest in less intuitive, more rigorous studies is bound to grow. This article explores potential interdisciplinary paradigms, the premise being that they will gradually evolve towards meeting the specific requirements of interpretation as an object of study.
