Description

Multiple Meanings: Translation Analysis and Systemic Functional Linguistics

According to Halliday, Systemic Functional Linguistics can be used as a map which allows us to see more clearly how language choices create meaning. However, that theoretical map is a complex one, so this session will first provide an accessible overview of how language can be regarded as a ‘system’ and, more importantly, of how language serves various different ‘functions’ on the levels of experiential, interpersonal and textual meaning. We will then critically explore how SFL can be used empirically: (i) as a method for mapping meanings in the ST, and (ii) as a comparative benchmark for the analysis of the TT.
