Andrea Musumeci: Scholarly and professional reflections on terminology-use and learnability in relation to translation equivalence

Through the contribution of linguists such as J.C. Catford, W. Köller, G. Mounin, and E. Nida, reflections will be made on the origins of the equivalence paradigm as the theoretical framework that enabled translation studies to be an academic discipline from the early 1960s. The role of translation equivalence in other areas such as field linguistics, and the use of the terms equivalent and equivalence in scholarly and professional settings will also be discussed.

Andrea Musumeci is a freelance linguist. Currently a visiting scholar at the department of Linguistics SOAS, University of London, where he is carrying out research on language support and revitalisation for Sicilian. He teaches on machine translation and subtitling software for the BA and MA Translation at Middlesex University. His research on optimality in translation studies has been awarded an offer for a PhD in Translation Studies by UCL, commencing in January 2016.
