Britain and Portuguese Timor, 1941-1976

View: 4993
In Timors chequered history, many other states have been involved. The prime purpose of this book is to examine the role of the British. Timor was not a part of their empire nor important to their commerce. But it had a long relationship with Portugal, with which, indeed, Timor had its longest relationship. Britains interest was thus largely indirect. It had two peaks, marked by the Second World War and the decolonisation of Southeast Asia. Those are recognised in the book, one the concern of the first four chapters, the other the focus of the last four. But there are links between them, in memory and in history. The book ends with an account of the Indonesian incorporation of the territory. The reporting of British diplomats was still copious and perceptive, but Britain which had now finally withdrawn from Singapore adopted only a very limited policy-making role. Though its interest was more indirect than ever, it was even so not without implications for the independence that the Timorese finally secured, and that affirmed the rule that post-colonial states were successor states of empire.

Translating Children’s Literature is an exploration of the many developmental and linguistic issues related to writing and translating for children, an audience that spans a period of enormous intellectual progress and affective change from birth to adolescence. Lathey looks at a broad range of children’s literature, from prose fiction to poetry and picture books. Each of the seven chapters addresses a different aspect of translation for children, covering: · Narrative style and the challenges of translating the child’s voice; · The translation of cultural markers for young readers; · Translation of the modern picture book; · Dialogue, dialect and street language in modern children’s literature; · Read-aloud qualities, wordplay, onomatopoeia and the translation of children’s poetry; · Retranslation, retelling and reworking; · The role of translation for children within the global publishing and translation industries. This is the first practical guide to address all aspects of translating children’s literature, featuring extracts from commentaries and interviews with published translators of children’s literature, as well as examples and case studies across a range of languages and texts. Each chapter includes a set of questions and exercises for students. Translating Children’s Literature is essential reading for professional translators, researchers and students on courses in translation studies or children’s literature.

Essential Portuguese Grammar will help you get more out of your study of Portuguese. Essential Portuguese Grammar is an up-to-date introduction to Portuguese grammar. You don't need to know a lot about grammar before you start. Everything is explained simply and there are lots of examples to illustrate each point. Unlike more traditional grammars, Essential Portuguese Grammar is structured so that you can look up language forms according to what you want to say, even if you don't know the grammatical term for them. If you already know some grammar, then you can use the 'reference grammar' section at the back of the book to look up the points you need. The course consists of 46 units illustrating the various uses to which the language can be put, for example, giving instructions or talking about the recent past. The more traditional reference grammar deals with grammatical structures, such as the imperative or the perfect tense. All grammatical terms are explained in the glossary at the back of the book. Each unit contains exercises for you to practise what you have learnt and there is a key at the back of the book for you to check your answers. The new page design in this edition means that the book is even easier to use and the main headings are in English so that you can find your way around the book quickly. This edition contains a 'taking it further' section which will direct you to further sources of real Portuguese. Essential Portuguese Grammar will help you to understand and manipulate Portuguese grammar with confidence because: - you need no prior knowledge of grammatical terminology to use it; - the approach is accessible and supportive; - the examples are clear and in context; - exercises help you practise every point. Now in a brand new edition with new, easy-to-follow page design and interactive on-line features: NOT GOT MUCH TIME? One, five and ten-minute introductions to key principles to get you started.
