CONJUNCTIVE COHESION AND THE LENGTH OF EAR-VOICE SPAN IN SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETING. A CASE OF INTERPRETING STUDENTS
Languages of publication
The present paper aims to examine the correlation between the presence of formal cohesive markers in the surface structure of the text and the length of the ear-voice span in simultaneous interpreting outputs. The types of cohesive devices analysed in the study are various types of conjunction: additive conjunction, adversative conjunction, causal conjunction, temporal conjunction, continuatives and emphatic conjunction. The model of classification of cohesive ties adopted in this study is that of Halliday and Hasan (1976), used previously by Shlesinger (1995) in her study of cohesion in simultaneous interpreting. The analysis of conjunctive cohesive ties rendition was performed using the criteria of Interpreting Constraints partly set in the framework of Information-processing Theory and relying heavily on Gile's Effort Models.
