Universal Semantics in Translation
Wang, Zhenying
English Language Teaching, v2 n3 p109-112 Sep 2009
What and how we translate are questions often argued about. No matter what kind of answers one may give, priority in translation should be granted to meaning, especially those meanings that exist in all concerned languages. In this paper the author defines them as universal sememes, and the study of them as universal semantics, of which applications are also briefly looked into.
