Research topic: Lexical and grammatical resources of functional equivalence in the translation of literary texts from Italian into Russian
Annotation to the dissertation: The thesis is devoted to the analysis of lexical and grammatical resources of functional equivalence in the translation of literary texts from Italian into Russian by the example of contemporary Italian writer A. Baricco’s novels and their Russian translations. For the first time the thesis presents a comparative analysis of A. Baricco’s literary works and their Russian translations: it is carried out within a scientific research in the field of translation and comparative linguistic studies. For the first time a link is observed and built between the category of figurativeness in the source text and translation as the main characteristics of the literary text in Italian into Russian translation from the point of view of functional equivalence. The system of lexical and grammatical (syntactical) resources is applied in realizing the functional equivalence in literary translation. The linguistic material presented in the thesis, as well as the results of the research can be applied in the scientific field, including further development of functional equivalence concept in literary translation not only from Italian into Russian, but also concerning other languages. Furthermore, the linguistic material can be used in the process of teaching Italian language to Russian speakers and Russian language to Italian speakers. The result of the thesis can be included in the university courses in comparative linguistics, linguistic semantics, literary text studies and the theory and practice of translation in philological and linguistic universities.
