Instead of dwelling on these differentials, the authors focus on what common ground exists between these distinctions. The proposed model is presented through a series of case studies, ranging from legal texts to poems, each of which focuses on one particular feature of text constitution, while not losing sight of how this contributes to the whole analytic apparatus.

This approach will be of immense interest both to aspiring students of translation and to professionals already working in the field." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0649/96015699-d.html."@en
