Tourism promotion across languages: What can corpora tell us?
Dr. Sofia Malamatidou, Department of Modern Languages, UoB | Senior Lecturer in Translation Studies
By combining linguistics and translation studies, Dr. Sofia Malamatidou is interested in the interdisciplinary study of cross-cultural communication, which generates new insights, and challenges the ways in which we have understood how languages, people, and ideas interact through translation. Methodological investigation, and specifically corpora, is also at the centre of her research, and her recent monograph, Corpus Triangulation: Combining Data and Methods in Corpus-Based Translation Studies (Routledge, 2017) introduces a new methodological framework, based on the combination of corpora, for the linguistic analysis of translated and non-translated texts.
