When translating the Hebrew verb in English, should one emphasize Aspect or Tense? Granted, aspect would form an integral part of Early Hebrew. Nevertheless, tense would become a dominant factor in Late Hebrew (i.e. Mishnaic and Modern Hebrew). From the foregoing it is clear that both aspect as well as tense should be involved in the transitional phase, i.e. Biblical Hebrew.

Narratology is concerned with the study of narratives; but surprisingly it does not usually distinguish between original and translated texts. This lack of distinction is regrettable. In recent years the visibility of translations and translators has become a widely discussed topic in Translation Studies; yet the issue of translating a novel s point of view has remained relatively unexplored. It seems crucial to ask how far a translator s choices affect the novel s point of view, and whether characters or narrators come across similarly in originals and translations. This book addresses exactly these questions. It proposes a method by which it becomes possible to investigate how the point of view of a work of fiction is created in an original and adapted in translation. It shows that there are potential problems involved in the translation of linguistic features that constitute point of view (deixis, modality, transitivity and free indirect discourse) and that this has an impact on the way works are translated. Traditionally, comparative analysis of originals and their translations have relied on manual examinations; this book demonstrates that corpus-based tools can greatly facilitate and sharpen the process of comparison. The method is demonstrated using Virginia Woolf s "To The Lighthouse" (1927) and "The Waves" (1931), and their French translations."

Simplifying complexity explores how to eliminate ignorance, which in the view of the author is the purpose of the sciences and technologies and their consequent developments. The book deals with the plurality of the sciences and technologies. It is about the way in which each of them develops around the prosthetics of printed languages and the models used as visual aids to help us create new modes of communication and solve human problems.
