Vermeer (1997: 163–164) wishes that "someone . . . would take up the meme subject in detail... so as to find out how far the meme idea carries for translation studies". It is nearing a time for giving as I write, and I hope that Vermeer will find among his presents a copy of Andrew Chesterman's book.
