This volume claims that interdisciplinarity and translation constitute the two main 'challenges' for cultural studies today. These conceptual issues ('inter' and 'trans') express themselves within specific historical and 'cultural' contexts. Interdisciplinarity is linked with the ongoing process of the institutionalisation of cultural studies in national academies, but also increasingly internationally, comparatively and to a certain extent even globally (cf. cultural studies of 'global culture'). Translation concerns cultural studies both as an object or product and as a subject or producer of translation processes. Cultural studies is the result of translation, translates and is being translated. The essays in this volume therefore relate these various ongoing cultural, linguistic and institutional translation processes to political and ethical issues of internationalisation and globalisation. The contributions draw their originality and strength from strategically crossing, disciplinary and national boundaries. They deliberately ignore the question of what may be 'proper' (to) cultural studies, and instead problematise the notions of 'propriety' and 'belonging'. As a 'reading practice' cultural studies, in these pages, is performedthrough adaptations and combinations of theory and critical practice. The volume should be of interest to everyone concerned with cultural studies' role in promoting intellectual debate within an increasingly international and 'globalised' public sphere.

This study draws a number of disciplines together from a Bible translation perspective. It offers a thorough semantic analysis of selected Hebrew lexical items referring to negative moral behaviour in the book of Isaiah, and discusses the implications of the analysis for Hebrew lexicography. The book first offers a critical appraisal of componential analysis of meaning, followed by a number of proposals to improve this analytical tool in order to bring it in line with modern insights from cognitive linguistics.

The recent multilingual turn involves various different implicit and explicit language policies, urging pressure and resistance with regard to the spread of English and its dominant relationships with other national languages. As such, this book considers the social value of communication as the basis of multilingualism and of the evolution of language systems. The data presented here show English as being in the middle of the double “listening” of cultural mediation and the imperfect “magnifying” glass of translation, with worldwide Standard English being but one of the many other related varieties which enjoy prestige on a large scale. These varieties may be identified according to different features which make the plural “world Englishes” an umbrella term with blurred edges. New approaches to dialects study have been developed in recent decades, and cartographic mapping has overlapped with the emergence of a new dialectology which deals with the description of language phenomena as complex concepts, where “complexity” provides a challenging framework for investigation and research of languages as dynamic systems made up of variables which mutually influence each other. Thus, dialectometry, dialectology and standardization become interesting tools for measuring linguistic differences, establishing language typologies and endorsing the systemic characteristics which can be formalized. Comprehensive and well-informed, this volume will appeal to anyone interested in the spread of English, from researchers and teachers to students, providing them with a greater understanding of some examples of world Englishes analysed under the light of complexity as a product of global society.
