Summary

This book focuses on the theoretical foundation of notetaking (NT), an essential skill of consecutive interpreting. Explaining the "whys" pertaining to the cognitive, linguistic, and pedagogical issues surrounding NT, this book addresses this neglected aspect of notetaking discourse and brings together most updated and different, if not opposing, theoretical perspectives by leading researchers and practitioners from both the West and the East: France, Germany, Taiwan, and Japan. The book, although primarily focused on the theoretical aspects of consecutive notetaking, also covers other issues pertaining to interpreter training and pedagogy in general, and provides instructors with useful guidelines and empirically-tested pieces of advice for good pedagogical practices.
