Beyond translation: essays towards a modern philology
Drawn from over three decades of studying, teaching, translating, and writing about Southeast Asian languages and literatures, the essays collected here for the first time are particular accounts of Becker's experiences in attempting to translate into or out of Burmese, Javanese, and Malay a variety of texts, ranging from single words, phrases, and sentences to whole stories.
In linguistics, the essays emphasize important kinds of nonuniversality in all aspects of language and look toward a new theory of language grounded in American pragmatism. In anthropology, the essays demonstrate that much of culture can be described in terms of text-building strategies. For all, the essays provide a new array of tools of comparison across distant languages and cultures.
