Table of contents

The present book builds on the 1990 book Discourse and the Translator by the same authors, in that some of the original points are developed further and new ones are added. Both authors have published widely in the areas of discourse analysis and translation studies, and the present book actually shares some ideas and examples with those in Hatim's latest book Communication across Cultures (1997).
