On one hand, it is an activity that requires a certain level of linguistic knowledge of the language being translated and the language used in translating a certain type of text, as well as general knowledge of the field, in the case of technical translations.
According to Fischbach , p. However, other individuals who are specifically skilled in the art of copywriting, proofreading, and layout are also needed to ensure that the final product is not only accurate and effective but also morphologically and syntactically cohesive and coherent. Fischbach , p. He must have a fairly extensive knowledge of, and be able to reason in, the subject matter of the translation 2. He must himself be able to embody that meaning in lucid straightforward English, French, Spanish, etc.
In his paper, Fischbach , p. He presented the problems that Shifts in Translation of Adverbs in English and Tagalog adverbs only and also posed that translators must be able to overcome. Take the following examples: 1. ONLY the first patient took this medication the next day 2. The first patient ONLY took this medication the next day 3. The first patient took ONLY this medication the next day.
The first patient took this medication ONLY the next day 5. The first patient took this medication the next day ONLY Sentence 1 means that none of the other patients took this medication. Sentence 2 means that the first patient did not gargle, swab his throat, fast, take liquids, nor do anything else but take this medication.
Sentence 3 obviously indicates that he took this and no other medication. Sentence 4 means that he took the medication as late as the next day. Sentence 5 indicates that he did not take the medication yesterday, last week, the same day, a week later, or at any other time except the next day. In the Philippines, the profession of medical translation is yet to be developed. Languages Used in the Study This section will outline the fundamental concepts in the linguistic systems of English and Tagalog that might influence the translatability of adverbs and adverbial expressions.
Comparison of the Linguistic Systems of the Source Language and Target Language English is one of the most widely used and spoken languages in the Philippines. In the past decades, under t he bilingual policy, English has been used as the medium of instruction in Philippine schools. Traditional analyses of grammar also used English as pattern in the analyses of Tagalog, and other Philippine languages.
However, there exist considerable differences in the grammatical systems of English, and Tagalog. Morphology Both languages, English and Tagalog, are agglutinating languages: the boundaries separating one morpheme from another in a word are clear-cult, and morphemes are easily segmentable Payne , p. In these languages, morphemes can either be free or bound morpheme and can be further classified as root, affix and particle. Part of Speech Categories Unlike English, Tagalog roots can be considered pre-categorial or neutral, neither noun nor verb Foley, These roots lack argument structure3 in their basic lexical forms.
Part of 3Argument structure also called predicate-argument structure refers to the relation of arguments to the predicate. It encodes lexical information about the number of arguments, their syntactic type and function and also their hierarchical organization Bresnan , p.
It also encodes prominence relations among arguments that reflect both their thematic and aspectual properties. Shifts in Translation of Adverbs in English and Tagalog speech membership can only be differentiated when affixes are attached or when used in context Nolasco , p.
For instance, the category of the word bili cannot be easily determined, as opposed to its English counterpart buy. In English, it can be argued that the word buy is a verb that requires an actor, theme and locative.
However, one cannot argue that bili has the same argument structure. Bili can function as verb in Bumili siya ng libro, and noun in Magkano ang bili mo sa libro?
In terms of part of speech of speech categories, some linguists argued against the existence of adverbs, adjectives and prepositions in Tagalog.
De Guzman argued that there are at least three major open classes of words in Tagalog: Nouns, Verbs and Adjectives p. Nolasco , p.
Prepositions in English such as to, in, at, on, etc that marks the locative expressions are being rendered by case marking particle sa in Tagalog. Tense versus Aspect One fundamental difference in English and Tagalog grammar is the interpretation of temporal information. English encodes both for tense and aspect.
In this language, the tense values of non-past and past interact with the aspectual values of progressive and perfective, respectively Dery Tagalog, on the other hand, encodes aspect in its morphology but does not encode for tense. What is important to its speaker is not the temporal relation of the activity to the moment of speaking, but the internal stages of the activity, whether it has been completed, non-completed, continuing, etc Nolasco , p.
Morphosyntax English and Tagalog also differ in terms of their morphosyntax.
English is a nominative- accusative language 4 and is more actor-oriented. Tagalog, though analyzed as similar to that of English in the traditional grammar, exhibits an ergative-absolutive5 language pattern. Tagalog is more concerned with the most affected entity, rather than the doer or the source of the action.
Word Order English is predicate-medial, the predicate comes after the subject in a clause or sentence. Tagalog is assumed to be a predicate-initial language. Shifts in Translation of Adverbs in English and Tagalog adjectival comes first in the clause or sentence, followed by the nominal or pronominal arguments.
As shown in the discussion above, English and Tagalog differ in many ways in terms of their grammatical systems. These differences may cause problems to translators when translating from English to Tagalog and vice versa.
Thus, one must be careful and must be able to realize these distinctions in order to make a cohesive and coherent rendition of the information between these two languages. Data Gathering This paper is concerned only with adverbs in English and Tagalog. The researcher has looked into various adverbs and adverbial expressions used in the book, in both English and Tagalog translations and examined them. It was done in two ways. First, the researcher mined the English translation for the adverbs and adverbial expressions in the language.
The English was tabulated against its Tagalog translation as shown in the table below. Table 1. The next step is to look for the English equivalent of these clitic particles.
The analysis is narrowed down to those English adverbs that translate as clitic particles in Tagalog. The researcher used AntConc, a computer program used for concordance analysis. Figure 1.
The items in the source language are aligned to their counterparts in Tagalog and shifts are tagged accordingly. Madalang kung maparusahan ang mga lalaking sanhi ng karanasan. The text is presented in tiers for each language: tier 1 is the text, tier 2 is the class analysis similar to grammatical gloss , and tier 3 is the unit analysis, based on rank scale hierarchy proposed by Catford The target text is then aligned to their equivalents in the source and annotated according to their grammatical category in their respective linguistic systems.
The item in question is boldfaced and enclosed in square brackets, both in the source and target languages. Then the type of shift is identified. For example, in 1 , rarely is annotated as belonging to adverb class and is categorized as a word unit. Its Tagalog equivalent madalang is annotated as adjective and word, in tier 2 and 3 respectively.
Based on the shift annotation, there is a class shift, from adverb to adjective from English and Tagalog while on the level of structure, both SL and TL items belong to word rank scale; therefore no shift takes place. Scope and Delimitations As discussed in the preceding section and to be examined closely later, English adverbs, particularly adverbs of manner are usually translated as adjectives or have forms morphologically identical to adjectives in Tagalog.
Adverbs of time or aspect, modality, focus or emphasis are translated as clitic particles. This study will only focus on those adverbs that are not problematic in terms of their morphological status. Hence, it will not discuss the adverbs of manner and other adverbs that are derived from adjectives.
Only those that translate as clitic particles will be dealt upon in this paper. Furthermore, only those most frequently used adverbs are included. Theoretical Framework This paper will explore different approaches to translation shifts, both structural and functional, as outlined by Cyrus John C. He based this on his distinction between formal correspondence and textual equivalence.
According to Catford , formal correspondence is a relationship that holds between two linguistic categories that occupy approximately the same in the organization or the structure of their respective languages p. Translation shift takes place when a textual equivalent is not formally correspondent with its source Catford , p. A shift can be of two major types: level shifts and category shifts. Level shift occurs when a source item has a textual equivalent on a different linguistic level Catford , p.
Catford identified four linguistic levels — phonology medium- form of spoken language , graphology medium-form of written language , grammar closed systems and lexis open sets. These levels are also related in language-specific ways to extra- linguistic levels of substance: phonology to phonic substance, graphology to graphic substance, and both grammar and lexis to situation substance p.
Textual and translational equivalence is only possible between elements that relate to the same level of Shifts in Translation of Adverbs in English and Tagalog substance which is possible only for the linguistic levels of grammar and lexis which are both related to situation substance.
Category shifts can be of four types: unit, structure, class and intra-system shifts Catford , p. Units are organized hierarchically based on a rank scale, with each unit being composed of a specific pattern of units that are lower in rank.
The grammatical rank scale consists of sentence the highest and largest , clause, group, word and morpheme the lowest and smallest. Unit shift occurs when textual equivalents are located on different ranks, e. A structure is defined as the patterned way in which a unit is made up of lower-rank units. A structure shift occurs when the structure in the target language contains different classes of elements or when it contains the same classes of elements, but arranges them differently.
This type of shift is the most frequent among the category shifts Catford , p. Structure shifts usually entail class shifts Catford, , p. An intra-system shift takes place when the two languages have a formally correspondent system, but prefer a non-corresponding item as translation equivalents.
Their work centers on a system of seven translation procedures which translators apply. These procedures are classified into two major types: direct translations which include borrowing, calque and literal translation; and oblique translations which include transposition, modulation and equivalence.
Transposition involves a change of word class that does not affect the overall meaning of the message. This type of shift can happen between all kinds of shift but Vinay and Darbelnet in Cyrus , p 92 focus on verbs and nouns.
According to Nida in Cyrus , p. Nida in Cyrus , p. However, only additions that do not change the semantic content of the message but rather make information explicit that is implicitly present in the source text. Subtractions, the Shifts in Translation of Adverbs in English and Tagalog negative counterparts of additions, make explicit information implicit without actually losing the semantic content of the message. Alterations involve shifts that are neither additions nor subtractions.
Changes of grammatical categories like number, tense, or voice fall into this category, as well as changes in word class, word order, sentence type, or directness of discourse Cyrus , p. Semantic changes on the level of individual words caused by difference in organization of the lexicon are also classified as alterations. This approach is designed and used for the description of actual translations rather than that of the relationship between two linguistic systems.
Van Leuven-Zwart in Cyrus , p.
As Cyrus observes, there is a traditional prescriptive claim that a translator should only revert to shifts or oblique procedures if the literal translation conveys some disadvantages with respect to the well- formedness or naturalness of the target p. Van Leuven-Zwart does not describe what translators could do and should do or not do, but simply describes and observes what they actually have done Cyrus , p. Corpus-Assisted Analysis of Shifts Cyrus also presents new trends in the analysis of shifts.
He first investigates the texture of the two texts by making basic word statistics. He compiles frequency list for both types and tokens. Munday also employs KWIC key word in context concordances can be combined with a sentence alignment tool to detect shifts in lexical cohesion, which is an important aspect in literary text Cyrus , p. It is also possible to investigate whether the item in a source language is consistently translated across the text in target text, by generating a concordance analysis for this specific item in the source language and then looking at the translations of this item in the aligned sentences.
This project is different from other corpus-based analyses because alignment and shift annotation is based on predicate-argument structures PAS. The reason behind this is that PAS are generally seen as representation of the underlying meaning of clauses and sentences.
For example, two sentences may be realized differently, but if they have a common predicate-argument structure, they can be considered to express approximately the same meaning Cyrus , p.
The annotation is kept simple and short intuitive role names are given for arguments that are predicate-specific p. The second step is the alignment of source predicates and source arguments to their target counterparts. It will also explore the corpus-based approach pioneered by Munday and employ a concordance-based analysis of the frequency of items concerned.
Translating Adverbs and Adverbial Expressions in English and Tagalog Before we proceed to the discussion of the translation types and procedures employed in adverbs in English and Tagalog, it is essential to know the characterization of adverbs in the two languages and then focus more on those that this study is concerned with.
Basic Morphology This section will describe the basic morphological structure of adverbs in English and Tagalog. English Adverbs in English can be classified into different types such as: a manner adverbs; b locative adverbs; c time adverbs; d frequency adverbs; e degree adverbs; and f sentence adverbs. Table 2. Basic Forms Most adverbs of manner and some adverbs of degree are formed by adding the suffix —ly to corresponding adjectives.
However, there are some exceptions. There are some exceptions, though such as well which is the adverb of good. Other adverbs are similar in form with adjectives as shown in table below. Type 2 adverbs of this type also have —ly forms.
Comparative and superlative forms Adverbs can also be inflected for degree. Single syllable adverbs are affixed with —er for comparative degree and —est for superlative degree as in 3.
Adverbs having two or more syllables are marked for comparative and superlative degrees with more and most, respectively, as shown in 4. Positive Comparative Superlative 3 hard harder hardest 4 quickly more quickly most quickly Irregular adjective-adverbs have different forms for comparative and superlative degrees, as illustrated in the examples below: 5 well better best 6 badly worse worst 7 little less least 8 much more most 9 far farther farthest 2.
Tagalog The previous sections have already shown that Tagalog and English employ different grammatical operations in the derivation of adverbs. English have the suffix —ly which attaches to an adjective to form the adverbial form.
However, Tagalog does not have this kind of formal marking to differentiate adverbs from adjectives. This lack of morphological evidence convinced Nolasco , p. Adverbial expressions nonetheless exist in Tagalog. Such category is being rendered by clitic particles. Shifts in Translation of Adverbs in English and Tagalog 2.
Basic Forms Schachter and Otanes identified two major types of adverbial expressions: a enclitic particles, a class of words that occur only in certain fixed word-order relations to other sentence elements; and b movable adverbs, a class of words and phrases that may occupy any of several different sentence positions p.
They also identified other types of adverbials such as initial adverbs which occur only at beginning of the sentence or clause, sentence-final adverbs which occur only at the end of the sentence and adverbial clauses which have sentence-like features Schachter and Otanes, , p. Tagalog has 18 enclitic particles, as shown in Table 4. Table 4. Placement Adverbs are also the most movable elements in English grammar as observed by Carter, Hughes and McCarthy in Hernandez , p.
On the other hand, Tagalog adverbial clitics are restricted by their phonological nature and their relative order is governed by certain hierarchy. English Hernandez provides the following rules regarding English adverbs position in a clause, enumerated below p.
She speaks French well. He went back fast. Shifts in Translation of Adverbs in English and Tagalog a. Paul is usually tired. Lucy gets very depressed sometimes.
I visit my cousin occasionally 14 Place frequency adverbs after the auxiliaries have, can, must. Mark has never worked with teenagers.
They can always come and stay with us. That happened long ago. He is old enough to make his own decisions. That happened six months ago. The children played happily together in the yard the whole afternoon. However they also occur at the end.
I had a tennis lesson last week. Last week I had my first tennis lesson. The students eat in the school cafeteria most of the time. Most of the time, the students eat in the school cafeteria.
He will finish with difficulty the fence. He will finish the fence with difficulty. Fortunately, the gas station was still open at that time. Frankly, I do not understand his attitude 22 The adverbs maybe and pethaps usually come at the beginning of a clause.
Maybe, he is right, and maybe, he is wrong. I certainly do not agree. I do not often have a cold neutral 24 Adverbs that express degree of intensity or completeness occur both in medial and final position but never in initial position. Thoroughly, I understood the explanation.
Shifts in Translation of Adverbs in English and Tagalog b. I thoroughly understood the explanation.
I understood the explanation thoroughly. They had probably been severely scolded by the instructor b. You have been wrongly directed. Tagalog Tagalog adverbial clitic particles follow a relative order when they occur together.
Table 5. According to Nolasco , this clitic order is governed by the following hierarchy, which is influenced by its prosodic requirements: 26 Ordering of Tagalog clitic particles a. Huli na ang lahat. Hindi pa huli ang lahat. Kinain na ng bata ang isda.
Hindi na kinain ng bata ang isda. A Shifts in Translation of Adverbs in English and Tagalog group A particle obligatorily constitutes an immediate part of it, and normally follows its first word regardless of the function of the initial component within the sentence or clause Schachter and Otanes , p.
Group B particles may occur in all the same sentence as group A particles, but may also occur in other sentence positions.
Group B particles may always constitute an immediate part of the sentence-initial complement, but need not to do so in all cases. In a basic sentence, a group B particle, like a group A particle, must normally constitute an immediate part of the predicate Schachter and Otanes , p. However, unlike the group B, the group C particles cannot normally constitute an immediate part of a sentence-initial adverbial followed by ay or pause.
Group C particles may constitute an immediate part of an inverted before ay or pause, or of an inverted predicate after ay or pause p. Lastly, the group D particles na and pa are also similar to group B particles in the range of structures to which they attach and of which they constitute an immediate part. But group D particles cannot normally constitute an immediate part of either a topic or an adverbial followed by ay or pause, unlike group C Schachter and Otanes , p.
Shifts in the Translation of Adverbs from English to Tagalog As we have already observed, English adverbs differ greatly in terms of morphological typology, and syntactic distributions. This is also influenced by other factors such as temporal information, mophophonological make-up, word order, among others. Visit website. See more. Filipino - English Translator.
