The Handbook of Spanish-English Translation is a lively and accessible book for students interested in translation studies and Spanish. This book details the growth of translation studies from Cicero to postcolonial interpretations of translation as rewriting. It examines through examples the main issues involved in translation and interpretation, such as text types, register, interference, equivalence, and untranslatability. The chapters on interpretation and audiovisual translation and the comparative analysis of Spanish and English are especially significant. The second part of the book offers a rich compilation of diverse Spanish and English texts (academic, literary, and government writings, comic strips, brochures, movie scripts, and newspapers) and their published translations, each with a brief introduction by Professor Aranda.

The Spanish Republic and Civil War

Author: Julián Casanova

ISBN: 1139490575

The Spanish Civil War has gone down in history for the horrific violence that it generated. The climate of euphoria and hope that greeted the overthrow of the Spanish monarchy was utterly transformed just five years later by a cruel and destructive civil war. Here Julián Casanova, one of Spain's leading historians, offers a magisterial new account of this critical period in Spanish history. He exposes the ways in which the Republic brought into the open simmering tensions between Catholics and hardline anticlericalists, bosses and workers, Church and State, order and revolution. In 1936 these conflicts tipped over into the sacas, paseos and mass killings which are still passionately debated today. The book also explores the decisive role of the international instability of the 1930s in the duration and outcome of the conflict. Franco's victory was in the end a victory for Hitler and Mussolini and for dictatorship over democracy.

Varieties of Spanish in the United States

Thirty-three million people in the United States speak some variety of Spanish, making it the second most used language in the country. Some of these people are recent immigrants from many different countries who have brought with them the linguistic traits of their homelands, while others come from families who have lived in this country for hundreds of years. John M. Lipski traces the importance of the Spanish language in the United States and presents an overview of the major varieties of Spanish that are spoken there. Varieties of Spanish in the United States provides—in a single volume—useful descriptions of the distinguishing characteristics of the major varieties, from Cuban and Puerto Rican, through Mexican and various Central American strains, to the traditional varieties dating back to the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries found in New Mexico and Louisiana. Each profile includes a concise sketch of the historical background of each Spanish-speaking group; current demographic information; its sociolinguistic configurations; and information about the phonetics, morphology, syntax, lexicon, and each group's interactions with English and other varieties of Spanish. Lipski also outlines the scholarship that documents the variation and richness of these varieties, and he probes the phenomenon popularly known as "Spanglish." The distillation of an entire academic career spent investigating and promoting the Spanish language in the United States, this valuable reference for teachers, scholars, students, and interested bystanders serves as a testimony to the vitality and legitimacy of the Spanish language in the United States. It is recommended for courses on Spanish in the United States, Spanish dialectology and sociolinguistics, and teaching Spanish to heritage speakers.

After thirty plus years teaching high school and college Spanish, there are many things that have not been taught at those levels. Remember how frustrating it was wondering how to say words and phrases about sex, and especially gay sex? So, I decided to compile this book just for you so, you do not have to wonder any more! This book will include just about everything that you have ever wanted to know and much, much more! A great percent of the book was written on my travels to the many Spanish speaking countries and through interviews with countless native speakers. Gay, of course! I have been to Spain four times spending weeks upon weeks in most all of the provinces. Over the past 35 years my travels to Latin America have been more extensive, living and studying in Mexico for over a year with over 40 return trips to most of the entire country exploring the enriching culture of our neighbors to the southern boarder. Within the past 15 years, I have explored the colorful, cultural riches of Guatemala spending months with the gualtemaltecos. I have also had the pleasure of three fantastic, magical adventures to Peru, which were truly spiritual experiences that enlightened and enriched me greatly. Other Spanish speaking countries that I have traveled and explored are Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Panama, Bolivia, Brazil, Uruguay and yes, Argentina. I wish to thank many friends and colleagues for their encouragement to write this book. They have read my work and have given me many helpful suggestions to finalize the process.

The book includes reappraisals of key popular directors such as Luis Garcia Berlanga and Antonio Mercero as well as critical analyses of celebrated stars like Marisol. It provides innovative consideration of the promotion and reception of horror in the 1960s, recollections of cinema-going in Madrid, and reflections on successful recent works such as Abre los Ojos and Solas.

Das Buch steht für das Ansinnen, Fragen und Antworten auf Ereignisse zu finden, die um das Jahr 1990 und heute in der Öffentlichkeit der größten Industriestaaten der Erde sich heftig zu Themen gestalten. Der Zerfall des sozialistischen Zentralismus der UDSSR und ihrer Satelliten DDR, Jugoslawien, etc. und die gesellschaftliche und individuelle Situation der Menschen drangen durch die Medien. Dieser wird gefolgt von der „Entspannungspolitik“ beider Systeme des „Kalten Krieges“ und dem „modernsten“ Krieg 1991 am Persischen Golf. In der auch vielfältig geologischen Ansicht und Erinnerung der Christlichen Imperien, zuerst Spanien-Habsburg, das British Empire, Frankreich, USA, etc., spiegeln die Entdeckung und Eroberung „West-Indiens“ und anderer Kolonialreiche die Kulturen und Rassen der Menschheit in den vergangenen 500 Jahren wieder. Das Buch erhebt mit aktueller Erzählung die mehr oder weniger historisch „wahrhaftig“ geltenden Ereignisse, welche wieder und wieder als platte Muster erscheinen, durch anregende Erfragung auf die Bühne der Natur und des Geistes als Schöpfung Gottes.
