Book: Developing Systemic Functional Linguistics
Chapter: 11. Analysing the reporting clause in translating Confucius’s Lun Yu (The Analects)
The aim of this chapter is to discuss the analysis of the reporting clause in translating Confucius’s Lun Yu (or ‘Lunyu’; Lún Yǔ; 論語) into English, with special focus on translating the reporting clause in a section of Chapter 14 in Lun Yu. The discussion shows that even the analysis of a single example from Lun Yu can provide implications for translation studies within a systemic functional linguistics framework.
