This is the second book of a two book series About Idiomatic language English idiomatic expressions are used both in formal and informal communications. They come naturally to native speakers who use them spontaneously without giving them much thought. However, non-native speakers of English have been found to lack the ability to use such expressions adequately, therefore creating a gap in proficiency. To be proficient in English, speakers are required to have a clear comprehension of figurative language. Idioms fall into this category. The more a non native speaker of English is able to use idiomatic expressions, the closer he or she is to English language competence. What are idiomatic expressions? Idiomatic expressions cannot be translated word for word without causing confusion. They must be adopted as a whole, due to their hidden, mysterious meanings. In this book you will learn numerous of such expressions, commonly used on a daily basis among native speakers, along with numerous phrasal verbs which also have non literal meanings. Definitions and clear cut examples have been set out to fully clarify how to use them. Some idioms and phrasal verbs are recycled in the examples for further consolidation. By becoming familiar with these important elements of the English language, you will undoubtedly increase your proficiency.

Idioms and Idiomatic Phrasal Verbs in Works of Dan Brown

Idioms and Idiomatic Phrasal Verbs in Works of Dan Brown

The original novels, The Da Vinci Code (2004) and The Lost Symbol (2008), were written by Dan Brown, whereas the Slovene translations, Da Vincijeva šifra (2005) and Izgubljeni symbol (2009) were translated by Nataša Müller.

The purpose of this dissertation is to research the general importance of translation in modern times, how idioms and idiomatic phrasal verbs are translated from the English language to the Slovene language and certainly to analyse what difficulties translators encounter during the translation process. In the theoretical part, the definitions of idioms and phrasal verbs,as well as various definitions of translation are provided. Furthermore,translation theories proposed by theorists and linguists are explained. In this part, attention is given to the types of translations, translatability, and the methods for translating idioms. At the end of the theoretical section, the focus shifts to the problems translators experience. In the empirical part of the dissertation, analyses and methodology are provided. The examples that are a basis of the dissertation are taken from four novels, two original texts and their translations. The original novels, The Da Vinci Code (2004) and The Lost Symbol (2008), were written by Dan Brown, whereas the Slovene translations, Da Vincijeva šifra (2005) and Izgubljeni symbol (2009) were translated by Nataša Müller. The main result of the analysis of all idiomatic expressions and their translations was slightly different from what I expected. The most interesting fact is that the number of idioms occurring in the translated novels is significantly smaller and thatthe problems encountered by the translator when translating idioms were quite frequent (a topic which is also analysed in the section where the omissions are analysed). Another intriguing result of the examination was the realisation that there are relatively few books and dictionaries of Slovene idioms available for a translator or a learner.
