Body Language.
Pollard, David E.
Perspectives: Studies in Translatology, v1 n1 p31-38 1993
Discusses how the use of body language in Chinese fiction strikes most Westerners as unusual, if not strange. Considers that, although this may be the result of differences in gestures or different conventions in fiction, it is a problem for translators, who handle the differences by various strategies, e.g., omission or expansion.
