Translation Research Based on Corpus From Contemporary Linguistics Perspectives

Jinyu DONG


Since 1990s, approaches to translation from contemporary linguistics perspectives have made a number of new progresses. The translation research based on corpus has become the research subject of many scholars. This thesis introduces the theoretical sources of Corpus Translation Studies and also discusses the presumptions of translation language variants and analysis modes based on the interaction of sociolinguistics. At the same time, it combines with other analysis tools, connects the discovery process and the generation process of text together and investigates on the discovery of quantitative research form social, cultural, historical, political and cognitive point of view. This will be the direction of further development on the corpus translation studies in the future.
