Speaking through the voice of another V update

Thank you to everyone who has responded to my call and participated in this project so far … I have been working with the data/comments gathered and these have become integrated into my overall research project as opposed to becoming a stand alone work.

What I did notice was that there were common issues/things that were ‘untranslatable’ and I am currently writing texts that incorporate some of these to be translated.  These dialogues have led me to consider particular grammatic and linguistic constructs and the role of subjectivity and deixis within translation and cross cultural communication.

I am now inviting people to collaborate with me in constructing short paragraphs which deliberately contain these ‘untranslatables’. If anyone is interested in being involved please email at: hconnelly2@lboro.ac.uk. Thanks as always! Heather
