Table of contents

Recent developments in Translation Studies (TS) have witnessed the integration of corpus linguistics into the discipline and the subsequent possibility for researchers to analyze a larger body of texts than would be feasible to handle manually. This integration has contributed to the emergence and development of a series of sub-disciplines, including corpus translation studies and corpus stylistics, which in turn enhance the interdisciplinary nature of TS. The volume under review is dedicated to delving into the various interdisciplinary methodological insights that help boost TS, especially empirical translation studies. The compilation comprises four parts, each concentrating on one approach to empirical translation studies.
