Teaching Interpreting. Study and Practice. Specialised Bibliography 5.
Altman, H. Janet, Comp.
A specialized bibliography on the study and practice of teaching interpreting is presented. Introductory comments note that interpreting is young as an academic discipline. Issues covered in this bibliography include the role of bilingualism, the relationship between translation and interpretation, and psychological, neurological, and sociological considerations. The 172 entries are numbered sequentially and arranged alphabetically within seven categories: (1) reference works; (2) theory of interpreting; (3) collective volumes; (4) training in conference interpreting (i.e., general, consecutive, simultaneous, and the curriculum); (5) interpreting as a language-teaching technique; (6) non-conference interpreting; and (7) interpreting as a career. A list of journals cited is included, along with an author index. (LB)
