The Application of Linguistics to the Problem of Teaching Pupils to Translate Complex Latin Sentences Into English.
Schofield, Harry
IRAL, v6 n2 p187-193 May 1968
Remedies are suggested for difficulties encountered in Latin to English translations by pupils in the fourth and fifth forms of English Grammar schools. Reading skills proficiency is seen as a prerequisite for effective translation, and stave analysis is suggested as a method of solving the problem of gross error in pupils' translations of complex Latin sentences. The importance of comprehending structure (as opposed to word translation) for full understanding of a language is stressed, and linguistic markers as signals of structure are considered as the guiding principles of the method. A short bibliography is included. (JH)
