Abstract:

This book focuses on interpretation corpora which is one of the major 
subjects of research in interpreting studies. It explores key issues such as 
corpus design and representativeness, as well as aims and challenges of the 
application of corpus-linguistics principles and methods to interpreting. 
Interpreting corpora represent a real challenge because of the very nature of 
the items they are composed of. The oral dimension, the unavoidable stage 
of transcription and the difficulties in relying on authentic data are only some 
of the aspects that make the creation of interpreting corpora a complex, 
challenging and time-consuming activity. The book discusses the theoretical 
problems and presents the working phases leading to the collection of five 
different interpreting corpora. The variety of approaches adopted by each 
research team highlights the fact that aims, interrogation methods and corpus 
design are intertwined. A survey of the studies carried out so far using these 
five interpreting corpora identifies data comparability as the core issue of 
corpus-based interpreting studies.
