Delabastita的双关语翻译理论在英汉翻译中的应用 : The application of Delabastita’s theory of pun translation to English-Chinese translation

Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)



This article tries to prove that, when applied to English-Chinese translation, Dirk Delabastita’s theory of pun translation is especially powerful in revealing the underlying concept of translation and may also serve as a guide to translators. It concludes that the lack of communication between China and the West in Translation Studies is due more to the culture- than the language-specificity of translation theory.
