|9780415030861 Baker M. In Other Words Taylor&Francis |
This work addresses the need for a systematic approach to the training of translators and provides an explicit syllabus which reflects some of the main intricacies involved in rendering a text from one language into another. It explores the relevance of some of the key areas of modern linguistic theory and illustrates how an understanding of these key areas can guide and inform at least some of the decisions that translators have to make. It draws on insights from current research in such areas as lexical studies, text linguistics and pragmatics to maintain a constant link between language, translation, and the social and cultural environment in which both language and translation operate. "In Other Words" examines various areas of language, ranging from the meaning of single words and expressions to grammatical categories and cultural contexts. Firmly grounded in modern linguistic theory, the book starts at a simple level and grows in complexity by widening the focus. The author explains with the concepts and theoretical positions explored within each chapter and relates these to authentic examples of translated texts in a variety of languages. This book should be of interest to undergraduates and postgraduates in linguistics, particularly pragmatics, language use and translation studies, and to professionals in the field.

Once again the setting is Piemburgem, the deceptively peaceful-looking capital of Zululand, where Kommandant van Heerden, Konstabel Els and Luitenant Vekramp continue to terrorise true Englishman and even truer Zulus in their relentless search for a perfect South Africa. While that great Anglophile, Kommandant van Heerden, gropes his way towards attaining true 'Englishness' in the company of the eccentric Dornford Yates Club, Luitenant Verkramp, whose hatred of all things English is surpassed only by his fear of sex, sets in motion an experiment in mass chastity, with the help of the redoubtable lady psychiatrist Dr von Blimenstein, which has remarkable and quite unforeseen results. The Kommandant, hunting the fox in the Aardvark mountains, succumbs to the bizarre charms of Mrs Heathcote-Kilkoon, as Luitenant Verkramp's essays in counter-espionage backfire in the bird sanctuary. Once more, Konstabel Els, homicidal to the last, saves the day - or what's left of it - in one of the most savage hunts ever chronicled in fiction.

|9780521658775 Multilingual Glossary of Language Testing Terms Paperback Cambridge University Press |
Inevitably, it is in the most commonly used languages that the vocabulary of language testing and assessment is most highly developed, and for which most of the literature has been produced. A multilingual glossary has a significant role to play in encouraging the development of language testing in less widely taught languages. The idea of producing a multilingual glossary of assessment and language testing terms has grown out of the needs experienced by members of the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE) while engaged in work on language testing projects. It is anticipated that this glossary will be of use, not only to members of ALTE, but to many others working in the context of European languages, who are involved in language testing and assessment. The glossary contains entries in ten languages: Catalan, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Irish, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

|9780195149609 Gardner Chromosome Abnormalities and Genetic Counseling.3ed.2003 Oxford Academ |
Chromosomal abnormalities can cause disability in children, and reproductive difficulty in parents. Many parents and couples seek genetic counselling in order to learn why they, or a relative, may have had a child with a particular collection of medical problems and/or intellectual disability.

These and other questions concerning chromosome abnormalities are addressed in this standard text, which will be of interest to genetic counsellors, medical geneticists, paediatricians and obstetricians, infertility specialists, and laboratory cytogeneticists. This third edition has been thoroughly updated, and is richly illustrated and fully referenced. New chapters have been written on preimplantation diagnosis and recent advances in molecular cytogenetics are noted. The book will give counsellors the information that will enable them to help concerned parents accommodate to their particular "chromosomal situation", and to determine what may be, for them, the best course of action.

|9780340869987 Jack Smart, Teach Yourself Arabic Book & Double CD Pack New Edition Hodder |
The Arabic taught in this book is the standard written language of more than 150 million inhabitants of the Arab states, ranging from Morocco in the west to Iraq in the east. The language you will learn is based on the kind of material seen in Arabic newspapers and magazines, or heard on radio and television news broadcasts. In modern everyday life in the Arab countries, so-called vernacular or dialect Arabic has supplanted Standard Arabic for spoken communication, but all these dialects derive from the parent root. If you have a grounding in Standard Arabic it will be easier to learn the modern local dialects which are based on it. Standard Arabic is also the lingua franca of the Arab world and can be understood anywhere in conversation with educated speakers. The course begins with a guide to Arabic script and throughout the book there is an English transliteration (English letters) to help you with reading and pronunciation. The 18 thematically written units are carefully graded and present new language via dialogues, which are also recorded. These are followed by questions and exercises to help you check your progress. The new vocabulary is given in both Arabic script and in transliteration. In addition to clear and full explanations of new grammar, you will find cultural tips which highlight some of the social and cultural aspects of life in the Arab world and which you will find invaluable on any trip. At the end of the coursebook you will find a Glossary of Grammar Terms, a Grammar Summary of the main structures of the Arabic language, a set of Verb Tables and reference sections of Arabic Numerals and plurals. Finally there are Arabic-English and English-Arabic glossaries so you can look up words alphabetically and a Grammar Index to help you look up specific points. The accompanying double CD provides approximately 2 hours of listening material. The CDs (0 340 87000 1) and book (0 340 86996 8) can also be purchased separately. Alternatively, the listening material is also available on a double cassette which can be purchased on its own (0 340 86999 2) or in a pack with the book (0 340 86997 6).

|9781585622016 Wise&Rundel Clinical Manual of Psychosomatic Medicine.2005 Eurospan |
More concise, practical, and clinically oriented than other available texts, Clinical Manual of Psychosomatic Medicine: A Guide to Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry is designed to aid today's busy clinicians with bedside and office consultation. This manual presents the distilled wisdom of two highly experienced consultation-lialson psychiatrists and includes many illustrative figures and tables that offer quick, easy access to critical information about how to diagnose and treat psychiatric disorders in patients who have, or believe they have, other medical disorders. The authors of Clinical Manual of Psychosomatic Medicine begin by summarizing how to do effective psychiatric consultation in a changing health care environment, citing key trends such as managed health care, reallocation of health care resources, medical care, and psychiatric consultation's shift from inpatient to outpatient settings, and to multidisciplinary teams. After discussing the mental status examination, the authors examine Epidemiology, clinical characteristics, differential diagnosis, and treatment and management of various syndromes and disorders - Delirium, dementia, depression, mania, anxiety, somatorm and related disorders, and substance-related disorders (alcohol, sedatives/hypnotics/anxiolytics, oplates/narcotics, amphetamines, and cocaine) - violence/aggression and suicldality. Pharmacological issues - Patients who are medically ill are usually taking one or more medications. Therefore, consultation-liaison psychiatrists must thoroughly understand drug actions, metabolism, and elimination; the cytochrome P450 system; and drug interactions, including the risks for pregnant and breast-feeding women. Other critical issues - Pain management, personality, ethical and legal, and geriatric psychiatry issues. Special consultation-liaison topics - Pregnant/postpartum, pediatric, burn, cancer, neurology and neurosurgery, HIV/AIDS, critically ill, and impotent patients, and organ transplant donors and reciplents. The work of consultation-liaison psychiatrists has been proven to reduce mortality, morbidity, length of stay, and hospital costs in general hospital patients and medical-surgical outpatients. To accommodate the shift from inpatient to outpatient settings and to the evolving importance of psychiatric care delivered within specialty and primary care settings, this invaluable reference shows how consultation psychiatrists are the ideal clinicians to provide rapid, focused, and practical diagnostic assessments and treatment recommendations. Essentially an expanded fourth edition of the Concise Guide to Consultation Psychiatry, the eminently practical Clinical Manual of Psychosomatic Medicine: A Guide to Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry will be welcomed by consultation-liaison and general psychiatrists, primary care physicians, consultation-liaison/psychosomatic fellows, psychiatry residents, and medical students. This manual is an outstanding resource for didactics and clinical rotations for those in training or reviewing for board examinations.

|9780006552116 Brenda Maddo Rosalind Franklin HarperCollins UK |
"Our dark lady is leaving us next week"; on the 7th of March, 1953, Maurice Wilkins of King's College, London, wrote to Francis Crick at the Cavendish laboratories in Cambridge to say that as soon as his obstructive female colleague was gone from King's, he, Crick, and James Watson, a young American working with Crick, could go full speed ahead with solving the structure of the DNA molecule that lies in every gene. Not long after, the pair announced to the world that they had discovered the secret of life. But could Crick and Watson have done it without the "dark lady"? In two years at King's, Rosalind Franklin had made major contributions to the understanding of DNA. She established its existence in two forms and she worked out the position of the phosphorous atoms in its backbone. Most crucially, using X-ray techniques that may have contributed significantly to her later death from cancer at the tragically young age of 37, she had taken beautiful photographs of the patterns of DNA. This biography tells the story of Rosalind Franklin - the single-minded young scientist whose contribution to arguably one of the most significant discoveries of all time went unrecognized, elbowed aside in the rush for glory, and who died too young to recover her claim to some of that reputation.

|9780141018225 Lodge David Author, author Penguin Books Ltd |
Framed by a dramatic and moving account of Henry James's last illness, Author! Author! begins in the early 1880s, describing James's friendship with the genial Punch artist, George Du Maurier, and his intimate but problematic relationship with fellow American novelist Constance Fenimore Woolson. At the end of the decade Henry, worried by the failure of his books to sell, resolves to achieve fame and fortune as a playwright while Du Maurierversifies into writing novels. The consequences that ensue mingle comedy, irony, pathos, and suspense. As Du Maurier's novel Trilby becomes the bestseller of the century, Henry anxiously awaits the opening night of his make-or-break play, Guy Domville. This event, on January 5, 1895, and its complex sequel form the climax to Lodge's absorbing novel. Thronged with vividly drawn characters, some of them with famous names, Author! Author! presents a fascinating panorama of literary and theatrical life in late Victorian England. But at its heart is a portrait, rendered with remarkable empathy, of a writer who never achieved popular success in his lifetime or resolved his sexual identity, yet wrote some of the greatest novels about love in the English language.

Reforming the Russian Legal System is a comprehensive analysis of the forces that are shaping legal reform in the republics of the former USSR. Looking beneath the flow of day-to-day developments, the book examines how traditional indigenous Russian legal values, and the 74-year experience with communism and 'socialist legality' are being combined with Western concepts of justice and due process to forge a new legal consciousness in Russia today. The author provides a broad historical survey of pre-revolutionary and Soviet-era legal developments, which provides a backdrop to the reforms initiated by Gorbachev. Chapters analysing constitutional law, criminal law and procedure, the Procuracy, and the laws governing the transition to a market economy illustrate the recurring themes of the book: the interaction of crosscurrents in Russian legal culture, and variations in the pace of legal reform from republic to republic and region to region.

|0090129007998 Mailer, Norm Why Are We at War? Random House (USA) |
"Patriotism in a country that's failing has a logical tendency to turn fascistic," writes Norman Mailer in WHY ARE WE AT WAR? And, yes, you guessed it: he says the USA is failing. He points to the unemployment rate, the fact that one percent of the population runs this country, that we do not get to vote on most things that affect our lives (e.g., how high buildings can be, whether tax money pays for interest groups, etc.), and then reflects on the identity crisis the United States of America experienced after 9/11. If we are such a great country, we wondered, why do so many hate us? We went into a tailspin and have decided that it is our job to instill democracy in other countries. The great irony, Mailer says, is that though democracy is the most beautiful concept in the history of civilization it is also the most fragile. It cannot be instilled by the US in other countries but most grow from years, even centuries, of struggle within the individual countries. Mailer writes that the American attempt to "export" democracy to other countries will, paradoxically, do more to encourage and promote fascism at home and abroad.
But Mailer does not allow for any such benevolent musings. We are not in Iraq to establish democracy, he writes. We are there to get a foothold on the Middle East, and then to pursue domination of the entire world. The plan for the US domination of the world was set in place back in the early 1990s. Mailer reasons that if not for Clinton the US would be running the world by now, which accounts for the intense hatred so many conservatives had for him.
WHY ARE WE AT WAR? is both enlightening and frightening.

|9780300097610 Brown Sale of the Century Yale University Press |
On 30th January 1649, following his defeat in the English Civil War, Charles I was executed. A few months later, Parliament passed an "Act for the Sale of the
Late King's Goods", and in early October the "Sale of the Century" began. Over the next four years, masterpieces by Raphael, Titian, Mategna, Veronese and other famous artists were
covertly acquired by the Spanish ambassador in London.
He shipped them to Madrid, where they were divided between the collections of Philip IV and his principal minister,
Luis de Haro. The "Sale of the Century" is one of the most famous events in the history of collecting and is the culminating episode in this text, which traces the political and artistic
relationship of Britain and Spain in the first half of the 17th century. The contributing historians and art historians begin their story in 1604 with the signing of the Anglo-Spanish Peace
They also discuss the novelesque visit to Madrid in 1623 of the Prince of Wales, the future Charles I, accompanied by the Duke of Buckingham, as well as the
episode involving Peter Paul Rubens, who in 1628-29 acted as an agent in fresh peace negotiations between the two monarchies. The volume includes portraits and biographies of
the leading figures, contemporary representations of the major historical events, and, of course, an account of many of the masterpieces that moved from L
ndon to Madrid.

|9780521874236 Margaret S. Making our Way through the World Cambridge Academ |
How do we reflect upon ourselves and our concerns in relation to society, and vice versa? Human reflexivity works through 'internal conversations' using language, but also emotions, sensations and images. Most people acknowledge this 'inner-dialogue' and can report upon it. However, little research has been conducted on 'internal conversations' and how they mediate between our ultimate concerns and the social contexts we confront. Margaret Archer argues that reflexivity is progressively replacing routine action in late modernity, shaping how ordinary people make their way through the world. Using interviewees' life and work histories, she shows how 'internal conversations' guide the occupations people seek, keep or quit; their stances towards structural constraints and enablements; and their resulting patterns of social mobility.

|9783211830079 Aca: Private Gardens Birkhauser Verlag AG |
The garden as total art work: in contrast to western-inspired garden design with its emphasis on trees and shrubs, lawns and flower-beds, it is the overall topographical effect that is considered paramount in the private garden of China. Artificial hills and carefully laid-out ponds and lakes transform the mostly flat terrain into a magical miniature landscape. It is the sheer subtlety of the layout of these gardens, inspired as they were by Confucianism, landscape painting and poetry, that give the onlooker the impression on occasion that he has before him an intricate water colour. Splendid photographs convey the magic of these gardens, which will be a source of inspiration for every garden lover. The historian, architects and all those interested in China and Chinese culture will, however, also find much that is valuable. Of all the volumes in the series "Ancient Chinese Architecture", Private Gardens is the one that will appear to the widest circle of readers, and will thus be an invaluable addition to the gardening section of every well-stocked bookstore.

|9780813528595 Cosmetic Surgery: the Cutting Edge of Commercial Medicine In Eurospan |
Cosmetic surgery is big business. With demand rising, this commercial medical practice has become a modern body custom. To explain the emergence and growth of this demand, Deborah A. Sullivan looks beyond the cultural imperatives of appearance and examines the market dynamics inherent in the business and politics of cosmetic surgery. In so doing, she also considers the effect of commercialization on the medical profession. After reviewing prevailing beauty trends, Sullivan looks at the social, psychological and economic rewards and penalties resulting from the way we look. Following an historical overview of the technological advances that made cosmetic surgery possible she explores the relationship between improved surgical techniques and the resulting increased demand. The book also examines the ensuing conflict within the profession over recognition of commercial cosmetic surgery as a specialty. Among the topics covered are sensitive areas such as physician advertising, unregulated practice and ambulatory surgery, and the consequences of commercialism on medical judgement. Finally, it reveals how physicians and their professional organizations have shaped the ways in which cosmetic surgery is presented in advertisements and women's magazines that would promote patient demand.

|9780500237809 Boardman History of Greek Vases. The Thames & Hudson |
In this volume, Boardman examines the functions of vases in ancient Greek life and culture, and as messengers of style and subject. He relates the processes of identifying the artists themselves, their methods of manufacture and decoration, the artists' life and conduct in the potters' quarter in Greek towns, and the ways in which their wares were traded beyond the borders of the Greek world, from Morocco to Persia, from Russia to the Sudan. Boardman demonstrates that the scenes figured on the vases reflected not simply on story-telling, but on the politics and social order of the day; moreover, they exercised a style of narrative in art that was to resonate throughout Western culture for centuries to come.

|9780714831862 Spalding Whistler Phaidon Press Ltd. |
James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) was one of the most original artists of the late 19th-century. Flamboyant dandy and ebullient publicist, friend of Oscar Wilde, Whistler was also a meticulous craftsman dedicated to the perfection of his art. He was born in the United States but travelled to Paris to study painting. Under the influence of Courbet, he began as a realist painter, but gradually developed a startlingly original method of composition, refining his technique to the barest essentials. He was one of the first to argue that the abstract ingredients of a painting - the lines, shapes, colours and tones - could in themselves be the subject; he entitled the portrait of his mother "Arrangement in Grey and Black". His emphasis on selection and swiftness of execution made a shocking contrast with the art of his day, concerned as it was with finish and elaborate literary allusions. Ruskin, the champion of Pre-Raphaelitism, accused him of "flinging a pot of paint in the public's face" - a comment that promptly inspired the famous lawsuit which left Whistler victorious but bankrupt. Whistler was one of the most independent artists in the second half of the nineteenth century, comparable in stature with Degas. His "Noctues" create an indefinable mood of wistful poetry, while his portraits remain some of the most haunting images in nineteenth-century art.
