The Development of Translation Competence: Theories and Methodologies from Psycholinguistics and Cognitive Science presents cutting-edge research in translation studies from perspectives in psycholinguistics and cognitive science in order to provide a better understanding of translation and the development of linguistic competence that translators need to be effective professionals. It presents original theories and empirical tests that have significant implications for advancing the field of translation studies and what researchers know about the development of linguistic competence. The book is divided up into three Parts. Part I consists of a state-of-the-art introductory chapter which serves to frame the subsequent studies in Part II which explore the development of translation competence by reporting on topics such as translation expertise, cognitive ergonomic issues in translation, translation ambiguity, standards and metrics for translation, processing speed and production time, among others. Part III then hones in on specific data collection methodologies from cognitive science that highlight innovative ways to gather and analyze data. Some methods discussed include tasks looking at processing speed, brain imagining techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging adaptation (fMRIa), language switching, eye tracking, keystroke and mouse logging, and retrospection, among others. This book effectively demonstrates that psycholinguistic and cognitive approaches to studying the development of translation competence promise to diversify traditional perspectives of translation studies and to improve the quality and generalizability of translation research in general. This title will serve as a valuable reference for scholars, practitioners, translators, and anyone who wishes to gain an overview of current issues and methods in translation studies solidly grounded in psycholinguistics and cognitive science.

Das Interesse an Formen der Bewertung im modernen, kompetenzorientierten Fremdsprachenunterricht (FSU) ist in den vergangenen Jahren deutlich gestiegen; dies gilt sowohl für standardisierte Abiturprüfungen (Qualifikationsprüfungen) als auch für Sprachstandsüberprüfungen (Klausur- und Schularbeiten) im Klassenzimmer. Das Studienbuch bietet eine auf der Sprachtestforschung basierende fundierte Einführung und mittels Anwendungsbeispielen illustrierte, praxisbezogene und sprachenübergreifende Darstellung und Diskussion. Lehrpersonen werden mit den theoretischen Prinzipien des Überprüfens und Bewertens vertraut und erlangen gleichzeitig konkretes Beispiel- und Umsetzungswissen, um Aufgaben- und Testformate für die verschiedenen sprachlichen Fertigkeiten und Kompetenzen selbst erstellen und bewerten zu können. Am Ende eines jeden Kapitels bietet das Buch Hinweise auf ein- und weiterführende Fachliteratur und stellt Arbeitsfragen, anhand derer der Kapitelinhalt memoriert und das erlesene Grundverständnis argumentativ ausgebaut werden kann. Damit kann das Studienbuch von Studierenden des Lehramts in Ausbildung, Referendar/innen, Unterrichtspraktikant/innen wie auch von Lehrkräften in der Praxis gleichermaßen genutzt und eingesetzt werden.

Das Buch behandelt den menschlichen Wortspeicher, das "mentale Lexikon," und damit die Frage, wie wir Worter lernen, verstehen, produzieren, speichern und finden. Im Mittelpunkt des Originals "Words in the Mind - An Introduction to the Mental Lexicon" (Blackwells: 2. Auflage 1994) steht die Betrachtung und Erforschung der englischen Sprache; die deutsche Fassung enthalt jedoch auch zahlreiche Beispiele aus dem Deutschen. Das Buch ist einfach und verstandlich geschrieben und gibt einen ausfuhrlichen Uberblick uber die Forschung zum mentalen Lexikon. Es richtet sich vor allem an Studierende der Linguistik und Psychologie, doch auch an Dozenten, Padagogen und interessierte Laien.
