This cutting-edge collection, born of a belief in the value of approaching ‘translation’ in a wide range of ways, contains essays of interest to students and scholars of translation, literary and textual studies. It provides insights into the relations between translation and comparative literature, contrastive linguistics, cultural studies, painting and other media. Subjects and authors discussed include: the translator as ‘go-between’; the textual editor as translator; Ghirri’s photography and Celati’s fiction; the European lending library; La Bible d’Amiens; the coining of Italian phraseological units; Michèle Roberts’s Impossible Saints; the impact of modern translations for stage on perceptions of ancient Greek drama; and the translation of slang, intensifiers, characterisation, desire, the self, and America in 1990s Italian fiction. The collection closes with David Platzer’s discussion of translating Dacia Maraini’s poetry into English and with his new translations of ‘Ho Sognato una Stazione’ (‘I Dreamed of a Station’) and ‘Le Tue Bugie’ (‘Your Lies’).

The Routledge Handbook of Language and Humor presents the first ever comprehensive, in-depth treatment of all the sub-fields of the linguistics of humor, broadly conceived as the intersection of the study of language and humor. The reader will find a thorough historical, terminological, and theoretical introduction to the field, as well as detailed treatments of the various approaches to language and humor. Deliberately comprehensive and wide-ranging, the handbook includes chapter-long treatments on the traditional topics covered by language and humor (e.g., teasing, laughter, irony, psycholinguistics, discourse analysis, the major linguistic theories of humor, translation) but also cutting-edge treatments of internet humor, cognitive linguistics, relevance theoretic, and corpus-assisted models of language and humor. Some chapters, such as the variationist sociolinguistcs, stylistics, and politeness are the first-ever syntheses of that particular subfield. Clusters of related chapters, such as conversation analysis, discourse analysis and corpus-assisted analysis allow multiple perspectives on complex trans-disciplinary phenomena. This handbook is an indispensable reference work for all researchers interested in the interplay of language and humor, within linguistics, broadly conceived, but also in neighboring disciplines such as literary studies, psychology, sociology, anthropology, etc. The authors are among the most distinguished scholars in their fields.

Un altro anno è passato. La Revolución complicata della stagione firmata Luis Enrique è ormai solo un ricordo. Dopo un’annata esaltante al Pescara, alla Roma arriva Zeman, garanzia di bel calcio e tanti gol. I tifosi tornano allo stadio con rinnovato entusiasmo, e insieme a loro torna Kansas City 1927, il fenomeno calcistico del web italiano, a raccontarci le avventure della squadra della Capitale. Diego Bianchi e Simone Conte descrivono nel loro inimitabile romanesco i volti nuovi schierati dal tecnico boemo, il gioco offensivo, le prime vittorie, la difesa ballerina, e poi le tremende sconfitte e l’inevitabile esonero, con annessa disgregazione del sogno zemaniano. Ma questi cupi risvolti non deprimono gli autori, che continuano «l’autoterapia di gruppo» anche durante la gestione del traghettatore Andreazzoli. Il risultato è un secondo volume più irresistibile del primo, impreziosito dalle tavole inedite di Zerocalcare, ricco di citazioni colte e forte di una lingua variopinta e poetica, che mescola una prosa gaddiana con una comicità alla Alberto Sordi. E anche se la Roma rimane invischiata in una transizione senza fine, Kansas City 1927 non si sottrae dal raccontare un campionato più difficile del previsto, in attesa di tempi migliori.
