TRANSLATING COLLOQUIAL IDIOMS/METAPHORS IN THE CATCHER IN THE RYE: A COMPARISON OF METAPHORICAL MEANING RETENTION IN THE SPANISH AND CATALAN TEXTS MICHAEL O’MARA Catholic University of Valencia San Vicente Martir Michael. [email protected] es 57 In hatred of the strange's lie infinished the American Library Association's inventory of the one hundred most constantly censored capacitys, The Catcher in the Rye (1951), by J. D. Salinger, is amplely meditateed to be one of the most recounting erudite employments of the twentieth seniority, constantly ground in violent discipline erudite curricula throughout Europe and North America.
The disunderportico concerns its alleged selfishness, ordinary articulation and treatment of sexual themes, multiplys that presimilitude Holden's use of the English articulation, or his idiolect. Idiolect applys to reputeistic disquisition. It is fixed on turnology, message segregation, turns, turns, and includes pronunciation. Of desubordination melody is the committer’s use of italics to demelody purport, or wless talk descend when regarding rhythm in, and incomplete, undeniable messages. It is feasible that this experience was brought almost to excellency in The Catcher in the Rye, in replicating disquisition patterns in written articulation.
Quite mayhap, it has not been matched past. The committer’s ability to stop rhythm and despicablesettle disquisition is, truly, finishedly observable. This is unconnectedly manifest for peruseers who are eloquent in, or are indigenous speakers of American English. Meditate how the committer stresses groups of messages: "Wuddaya average so what? " (p. 41) "You don't do one damn man the way you're reported to" (p. 41) "She was blocking up the perfect goddam interpassage in the aisle" (p. 87) miscelanea: a chronicle of english and american studies 35 (2007): pp. 57-75 ISSN: 1137-6368 Michael O’Mara
Other periods, undeniable messages are stressed: “What the tortureja do that for? ” (p. 41) “Well, don't get ardent encircling it... ” (p. 82) “Which is someman that affords me a princely affliction in the ass. I average if celebrity yawns lawful conjuncture they’re doubt you to do them a goddam favor” (p. 28) Finally, and perfortuity most unconnectedion, the committer stresses talents of messages: “I average I’m not going to be a goddam surgeon or a violinist or anyman anyway” (p. 39) "It's not bliss or everything... ” (p. 55) “For Chrissake, Holden. This is encircling a goddam worthiestball glove" (p. 1) 58 Preserving the choiceness of Holden Caulfield's idiolect has been a brave for translators seeking to defend the remainder and the zest of the disquisition using the techniques that Salinger pristinely used, callly, flow of perception and pompous oration in which, immediately and intimately, Holden recounts his incident in reminiscence to the peruseers. This technique has the remainder of reconceding the interior employmentings and care adjustes of Holden —disjointed and random— and as-courteous collects dialogs that are remarkably melting and penny.
To reproduce-exhibit Holden and his frustrations using the correspondent record in another articulation is a daunting chore, truly, unconnectedly past Holden attaches his own averageings to the articulation that he uses. Costello1 reminds us that Holden misapplys worthiest indications from his bound and makes them his own. For illustration, his generous and inexact use of "and all" to end cares parallel delay the dogmatical "I truly did" or "It truly was" are general throughout the strange, assisting to construct Holden's own unconnected unity.
Other committers keep commented upon the perception of Holden’s disquisition in defining his reputation in relative to the peruseers: “... his articulation, his own idiolect, generous of turns and despicableplaceisms, is the main component that conciliate subscribe to Holden’s bud as a reputation in his transition from minority to adulthood and his relativeship delay the peruseer”2. Although translating Holden's turns may afford braves, it may be one of the most specificive aspects of preserving the zest of his idiolect and remainder it has on peruseers.
Holden Caulfield's turns Approve other articulations, English is generous of turns such as "to viotardy a leg" and "to draw someone's leg". An turn is a construct of indication, plain peruseing, turn, etc. , reputeistic to a articulation; a reputeisticity of turnology prevailing by the exercitation of a articulation, and constantly having a perception other than its plain or obstruct one. 3 miscelanea: a chronicle of english and american studies 35 (2007): pp. 57-75 ISSN: 1137-6368 Translating despicablesettle turns/metaphors in The Catcher in the Rye Idioms generally keep three unconnectedions: 1.
Their averageing cannot be deduced from their components or any preparation thereof, and must be literary as a perfect. If one were to decipher ‘to viotardy a leg’ barely on the cause of its components it rule be very perplexing to exhibit that the specific averageing is dogmatical, averageing to keep a cheerful-tempered-tempered period, not run defective, unconnectedly when used in the irresistible. Likewise, nowless in the indication ‘to draw someone’s leg’ tless appears any multiply that would tender joking, or specifically, having someone deem mans that are not penny. 2. None of their constituents may be replaced delay messages of correspondent averageing.
For illustration, if one were to resettle the message ‘fracture’ for ‘break’ in to ‘viotardy a leg’, the averageing would be past. Likewise, upon species the sight of joking one could not say that he or she had had his or her leg ‘stretched’. 3. Finally, turns cannot be syntactically mitigated. One would probably not be implied if one were to say ‘I had my leg broken’ averageing ‘I had a cheerful-tempered-tempered period’; it would be correspondently confusing to say ‘I had my leg drawed yesterday’ if one were to announce that they were joked delay yesterday. Extraneously any treatmentual advice a disciple of English rule keep paltry resolve what these indications average.
Clearly, the averageing in these turns is typical, or "expressing one man in stipulations normally denoting another"4 and typical wless "a similitude of disquisition in which a message or turn denoting one bark of sight or resolve is used in settle of another to tender a correspondentity betwixt them (as in the ship plows to sea)". 5 For this deduce, the turns in doubt ground in the capacity could be applyred to as despicablesettle similitudes6 as some committers prefer: similitudes for the aforementioned semantic arguments and despicablesettle consequently they are similitudes which remain in the balance inexact records, in this instance, slang.
But the tidings ‘commonsettle turn’ appears to be surpassing in most discovery treatments7. For this deduce I conciliate apply to them as despicablesettle turns/metaphors. This con-balance nucleuses primarily on the pragmatic resolve of these similitudes past it is the idiolect of Holden Caularena that is to be scrutinized in its aesthetic remainder and ‘flavor’. Therefore, not all similitudes ground in Holden's idiolect were clarified. In befallrence, some similitudes are so worthiest that it has been disregarded that they are similitudes, having been legitimate into model use.
Such is the instance delay the sublime seniority of phrasal verbs in English: ‘get up’, ‘get balance’, etc. Also, tless are sundry illustrations of despicablesettle message combinations general delay some abundance in the strange, but they keep not been interjacent in the con-balance as their typical qualities are balance abstract8 and rule rather, and balance unexceptionably, be cogitation-out as collocations, or messages that are ground to befall assentntly, to scrutinize their restrictions of exercitation in relative to other components (prepositions, verbs, etc. . Less are some illustrations that use the message ‘hell’: miscelanea: a chronicle of english and american studies 35 (2007): pp. 57-75 ISSN: 1137-6368 59 Michael O’Mara torture of it as torture The torture out to bang torture (as a noun) The torture delay it in torture 29, 61, 73,210 34,35, 37, 38, 94, 113 52, 179 53, 115, 69 146 TABLE 1: Worthiest message combinations not interjacent in the con-balance and their page aggregate Theoretical frameemployment We are in underportico delay Lorenzo, M. et al. in that the pristine trudge a translator must follow is to plainly mark-out his sightive anteriorly conceding a translation which is as penny as feasible to the pristine passage. One of the aspects of Hans Vermeer’s concept of skopos (1989:227) is the organization of a plainly mark-outd sightive or resolve for translation: Any construct of translational operation, including accordingly translation itself, may be conceived as an operation, as the call implies. Any operation has an aim, a resolve. The message skopos, then, is a technical tidings for the aim or resolve of translation. 0 This said, we are in underportico delay Lorenzo et. al (1999: 324) in the transators’ role to “defend the resolve of the ST (beginning passage) delayout any unwarranted diversification. The main sightive of any translation should be that of faithfulness to the pristine passage delay obstruct watchfulness to delayness. Delay this sightive in intellect, any translation of The Catcher in the Rye must meditate the feasible resolves the committer had in using despicablesettle turns/metaphors in the pristine settle.
Paul Newmark tenders that tless are two resolves that similitudes obey: a applyential resolve, which represents "a intangible adimpartial or declare, a concept, a individual, an sight, a property or an operation balance comprehensively and concisely than is feasible in actual or substantial articulation"9 and a pragmatic resolve "which is concomitant, is to apostrophize to the purports, to curiosity-behalf, to exculpate "graphically", to gleefulden, to rapture, to amaze. The pristine resolve is perceptive, the relieve aesthetic. 10 Although Holden's despicablesettle similitudes/idioms do keep applyential purport, it is arguable that abundantly of their purport in constructing an gross multiply of his idiolect derives from their pragmatic or aesthetic resolve, their gift to the zest of Holden's disquisition. Any translation of The Catcher in the Rye would keep to be perceptive to the remainder that they movables on peruseers, and try to movables the correspondent remainder in the miscelanea: a chronicle of english and american studies 35 (2007): pp. 7-75 ISSN: 1137-6368 Translating despicablesettle turns/metaphors in The Catcher in the Rye translation (Nida's Equiponderant Effect). This would induce, whenever feasible, locating in the target articulation a similitude used in inexact records whose semantic full balancelaps as obstructly as feasible the averageings of the pristine similitude. This would exact a equality betwixt construct and averageing or a tenet of unity as Lorenzo et al. (1999) reafford where: ... ny multiply in the ST [beginning passage] should be transformd and translatable into the TT [target passage] by paying obstruct watchfulness not solely to the full but as-courteous to the construct. Accordingly, tless should be a obstruct structural and averageingful equality (=identity) betwixt the beginning and the target articulation. The translator, then, should adless to the ST itself as the solely worthiest for the adimpartial of translation. The TT, accordingly, conciliate be the remainder of a obstruct decomposition of the ST by succeedingcited the unity tenet and an undercapture at advance decipheration or hiatus should be discarded. 1 For the regard of frankness in this discovery, I conciliate be using Lopez’s (1997) specification12 of lexicalized organizations delay a neglect species: her specification encompasses turns and cliches which can be implied in a broader purport as ‘message combinations’, ‘fixed indications’ and ‘phrasal lexemes’. Although they are unconnectedive multiplys in the idiolect of Holden as courteous, I tender to reject passage constructulae (you could recount, if you avow what I average) and non-canonical indications, implied by Lyons (1968: 178) in Lopez as ‘schemata’ (How encircling...? , to nucleus the discovery specifically on Holden's despicablesettle turns/metaphors and the systems that were used in their translation. These conciliate be representd according to Lopez’s model13, which was conservative in multiply from Baker (1992), who represents indelicate highest systems: actual translation, translation by equivalence, translation by species and translation by exclusion. Actual translation involves the use of a lexical organization in the target articulation that is correspondent in construct and averageing. These despatchess are rarer, but they do befall. For illustration when Holden says "I damn neighboring emanateped insensible" (p. 1) the despicablesettle turn/similitude "to emanate insensible" is transformd using the actual translation system as tless remains a despatches in construct and averageing in twain Spanish "Casi me caigo muerto" (p. 46), and Catalan “Va anar de poc que no caigues a terra mort" (p. 51). Translation by equivalence is a system that is constantly industrious when tless is no finished despatches betwixt organization and construct betwixt the beginning and target articulation. It involves the use of another lexical organization in the target articulation that is correspondent in averageing but unanalogous in construct. "I wouldn’t keep the guts to do it" (p. 9) is transformd into Spanish as "no habria tenido agallas para hacerlo" (p. 116) and into Catalan as "no tindria pebrots de fer-ho" (144). The organizations themselves are in-deed identical; the discord resides in the befallrence that conjuncture the noun ‘guts’ can specific fortitude turnatically in English, the correspondent is not penny in miscelanea: a chronicle of english and american studies 35 (2007): pp. 57-75 ISSN: 1137-6368 61 Michael O’Mara 62 Spanish or in Catalan and is exhibitd by unanalogous nouns, callly, ‘agallas’, actually ‘gills’ or ‘tonsils’ in Spanish and ‘pebrots’, or actually, ‘peppers’ in Catalan.
Translation by species involves paraphrasing or expounding the typical averageing of a lexicalized organization. The remainder is the dropping of typical averageing; the resolve is no longer specificed in typical stipulations. This system is usually industrious when no equiponderant or neighboring equiponderant organization can be ground in the target articulation. Baker argues that this technique is as-courteous used when "it appears irrelevant to use turnatic articulation in the target passage consequently of discords in stylistic preferences of the beginning and target articulations". 14 For illustration, "Old Stradlater was one of his pets... (p. 43) is transformd in Spanish as "Stradlater era uno de sus favoritos... ” (p. 60) and Catalan as "L'Stradlater era un dels seus preferits... ” (p. 71). In English ‘pet’ has the succeedingcited averageings: "1: a subjugated lewd kept for determination rather than utility; 2a: a pampered and usually robbed child; b: a individual who is treated delay uncommon barkness or meditateation: darling". 15 The averageings of this message in Spanish (lewd domestico" or "mascota") and in Catalan ("lewd domestic") are not usually expanded to reafford community who are treated delay "mercy and meditateation".
Here, a correspondent similitude in averageing but not in construct could be used, or, as is the instance in this illustration, the similitude rule be paraphrased or expounded. The decisive system, exclusion, is used when a similitude in the beginning articulation is not transformd past an equiponderant cannot be ground, or consequently it is not manageable to expound, or for stylistic deduces is not reported misapply for inclusion. This decisive system usher-ins some curiosity-behalfing concerns: it is finishedly feasible that tless is no correspondent organization in the target articulation to expound the paraphrasing of a similitude, but if such correspondent or equiponderantt organizations were to remain, tless ight be other multiplys delayin the sublimeer cultural conpassage of the target articulation (elements listless in the sublimeer cultural conpassage of the beginning articulation) that could application the misapplyness of their use. Perhaps, what should be meditateed is whether the feasible connotations that the similitude could keep or movables beyond its cultivation of rise rule perplex the peruseer from the pristine arena of applyence of the similitude, or usher-in relieveary averageings that are not necessarily afford in the predicament of the pristine similitude. miscelanea: a chronicle of english and american studies 35 (2007): pp. 7-75 ISSN: 1137-6368 Translating despicablesettle turns/metaphors in The Catcher in the Rye Beginning passage despicablesettle similitudes and their target passage reproduce-exhibitations: Description METAPHOR ST (P. ) 1 ...

This is not an assessment of how diligently the translators strove or how fortunate they were in finding equiponderants in the target articulations and in no way implies a estimate judgement as to which translation is balance ‘accurate’. It is evident that translators employment solely delay the tools that are beneficial in their target articulations and cultural treatments. Nevertheless, what this con-balance undertakes to collect is postulates that can succor to exculpate to what station the typical species of resolves specificed using despicablesettle similitudes in the beginning passage were defendd as such in the Spanish and Catalan translations.
Our remainders appear to tender that the despicablesettle similitudes reproduce-exhibited in the Catalan translation restrain balance of the pristine typical averageing afford in the beginning passage. This translation employs on recountingly balance occasions the equivalence system of similitude translation, used on 53 occasions in the Catalan translation and on 41 occasions in the Spanish representation. These postulates are recounting consequently when this system is used to transtardy an resolve specificed as a similitude in the beginning passage, the resolve restrains its standing as a similitude in the target passage, the solely discord species in its construct, or semblance.
Since no two articulations are resembling, target articulations cannot continually collect despatchess in twain construct/organization and averageing. Our blank is as-courteous befriended by the befallrence that the species system of translation was used on recountingly balance occasions in the Spanish translation than in the Catalan representation: it was used 44 periods to movables the Spanish translation and 29 periods in the genesis of the Catalan translation.
In other messages, the despicablesettle similitudes that Holden uses in the capacity are ground to be expounded or paraphrased recountingly balance in the Spanish translation than in the Catalan representation, which reproduce-exhibited these similitudes through either equivalence or the actual system. This decisive system, although to a lesser station, supports our blank as courteous: it was ground that the Catalan translation used a lexicalized organization correspondent in construct and averageing on 8 occasions conjuncture it was ground on 5 in the Spanish representation.
Put unanalogously, although the discord is insignificant (5-8), the Catalan translation uses the correspondent or neighboringly the correspondent similitude on balance occasions than the Spanish translation. Considered numerically, in the Spanish translation the most continual system used was that of species (44), followed by equivalence (41), actual translation (5) and decisively exclusion (0); and in the Catalan translation the most continual system used was equivalence (53), followed by species (29), actual (8) and decisively exclusion (0) as may be seen in Table 3: miscelanea: a chronicle of english and american studies 35 (2007): pp. 7-75 ISSN: 1137-6368 72 Translating despicablesettle turns/metaphors in The Catcher in the Rye 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 Spanish Catalan Equivalence 41 53 Species 44 29 Actual 5 8 Exclusion 0 0 TABLE 2: Translation techniques: abundance 73 Our remainders can be compared to correspondent studies such as Lopez Rua (1997) in “The translation of the idiolects in The Catcher in the Rye: An avenue through lexicalized organizations” and Lorenzo, M. et al. , (1999): “Lack of averageing interoperation betwixt English, Galician and Spanish in Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye”.
Although the nucleus of neither con-balance is the translation of despicablesettle turns/metaphors, twain studies argue dropping of averageing upon translation from English to Spanish and from English to Galician, and assent in the scarcity to haunt construct and averageing betwixt beginning passage and target passage. Specifically, Lopez Rua ground that the most remarkable correspondentity in twain translations is the abuse and obstruction of the technique of species or paraphrasing: Most of the inadequacies detected in the Spanish and Galician representations are allied to the translations by paraturn and by exclusion.
In my survey, they are due to the befallrence that the translators keep failed to avow the defining components of the reputations’ idiolect (for illustration, the unicontrive use of some lexicalized organizations). Apparently, they are not known of the befallrence that the writer is deliberately haunting to commonplace and unicontrive glossary in adimpartial to mark-out the reputations and their disquisition manners. Twain translations (but detailly the Spanish one) appear completely disqualified to sursurrender the reputations’ idiolects respectfully.
Instead of trying to consign those idiolects whenever feasible (of passage, adapting them to the reputeisticities of the TL), in most instances the translators remanner to the unicontrive exclusion of reiterated organizations, and some other periods they transtardy those reiterated organizations in sundry unanalogous ways miscelanea: a chronicle of english and american studies 35 (2007): pp. 57-75 ISSN: 1137-6368 Michael O’Mara delayout portico into representation the treatment, the fashion, and the reputation who uses them. As a remainder, the translation becomes indicationless. 19 The remainders of Lorenzo et. al. 1999), can be applied as courteous to our con-over, unconnectedly in stipulations of the perception of a stringent adherence to the unity tenet20, from which the Spanish and Gallician representations could keep benefited: the seniority of the feasible errors adjustly cogitation-out could keep been avoided if the translators had follown into meditateation the unity tenet... In befallrence, the unity tenet, past it is fixed on the equality betwixt construct and averageing in the ST and the TT, would keep proved a balance respectful means when trade delay the adimpartial of translation from a affordn L1 to L2 and L3. 21 Notes 1 See Costello (1959:173). 74 2 .

Conjuncture it is penny that twain translations of "It gets on your nerves sometimes" restrain typical/typical averageing, they can be rectify implied as collocations —"ponerse" (Spanish) and "posarse" (Catalan) place delay "nervioso" (Spanish) and "nervios" (Catalan)— and their legitimate use in twain model Spanish and Catalan is fairly amplespread.
Here they obey to exculpate the pristine similitude which in English is generally meditateed balance inexact. miscelanea: a chronicle of english and american studies 35 (2007): pp. 57-75 ISSN: 1137-6368 Translating despicablesettle turns/metaphors in The Catcher in the Rye 17 . The translation of the despicablesettle similitude “to get to pristine worthiest” delay someone less is slightly faulty. The Catalan translation is obstructr in averageing to the ST, wless the similitude is used in relative to fanciful intimacy: pristine worthiest applys to judicious contacts such as kissing; a “homerun” generally applys to sexual intimacy. 8 . The absence of a translation for the message "bum" in the Spanish translation may be meditateed slightly faulty: although the message “bum” does not construct a multiply of the similitude itself, it does subscribe to the atmospless in which the similitude is afforded. In this instance, the “perverty bum” was left adjustly as “un pervertido” in the Spanish translation, disregarding the material bit of advice that the individual is a “bum” i. e. a homeless and/or thin individual. The Catalan representation transforms it as a “desgraciat” or illfated, adverse, or smooth pitiable individual.
One rule tender that a “perverty bum” is balance in keepership delay the idiolect of Holden than adjustly a “pervert”. 19 . See Lopez Rua (1997: 149). . See Lorenzo, M. et al. (1999: 5). . Ibid.
