About this book

This book sheds light on the phenomenon of consecutive interpreting. It combines phenomenological and empirical analyses to build a communication theory of interpreting. The author begins by reviewing mainstream research on consecutive interpreting and then dissociates himself from it, conducting a three-tier analysis of interpreting data. He concludes by presenting an alternative theory of consecutive interpreting. As he makes clear from the outset, a new and combined methodology for consecutive interpreting needs to be constructed to satisfy both the relation of the phenomenon to experience as well as its social foundation. He also stresses the potential within the humanities for wider employment of the phenomenological empirical method. This book will appeal to students and scholars of linguistics, translation, phenomenology, social interaction and communication

Reviews

“Consecutive Interpreting makes a clear case for a new and combined methodology for consecutive interpreting that satisfies both the relation of the phenomenon to experience as well as its social foundation. It also stresses the potential within the humanities for wider employment of the phenomenological empirical method. Consecutive Interpreting will appeal to students and scholars of linguistics, translation, phenomenology, social transition and communication.” (SirReadaLot.org, Issue 221, September, 2017)
“This is a landmark study. For the first time ever, phenomenology and communication studies are brought together and shown to illuminate each other in unexpected but essential ways. Alexander Kozin’s prose is crisp and lucid, and his concrete examples, drawn from many fields and sources, are clarifying and lively. He shows how the procedure of consecutive interpreting has considerable contemporary relevance. This book fills a significant lacuna in communication theory while being a major contribution to the understanding of oral discourse, interpretation, and translation from the phenomenological perspective.” (Edward S. Casey, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, SUNY at Stony Brook, New York, USA)
