study of court interpreting



I have yet to read this book, but it looks fantastic. She looks at things like how attention is shifted to the court interpreter in proceedings, how the interpreter affects testimony styles and length, the impact of interruptions, and how interpreters deal with passive voice for blame avoidance in Spanish.

how about abebooks? or better world books? i would think you wouldn't want to give amazon a place on your blog. just a thought.

keep up the great blogging.

absolutely true. I couldn't find/figure out the abe books widget - but they carry the same book here: http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=1243104540&searchurl=imagefield.x%3D0%26imagefield.y%3D0%26kn%3Dthe%2Bbilingual%2Bcourtroom%26sts%3Dt

(though I will admit that amazon is astoundingly convenient. would that they would unionize like powells books (the other great online books site)
