The Borrowers: Researching the cognitive aspects of translation

O'Brien, Sharon (2013) The Borrowers: Researching the cognitive aspects of translation. Target - International Journal of Translation Studies, 25 (1). pp. 5-17. ISSN 1569-9986

The paper considers the interdisciplinary interaction of research on the cognitive aspects of translation. Examples of influence from linguistics, psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, reading and writing research and language technology are given, with examples from specific sub-disciplines within each one. The breadth of borrowing by researchers in cognitive translatology is made apparent, but the minimal influence of cognitive translatology on the respective disciplines themselves is also highlighted. Suggestions for future developments are made, including ways in which the domain of cognitive translatology might exert greater influence on other disciplines.
