LOPEZ ZURITA, Paloma. Bullfighting Vocabulary in Richard Ford’s Gatherings from Spain. Cuad. Lingüíst. Col. Méx. [online]. 2018, vol.5, n.2, pp.335-370. ISSN 2007-736X.

This article carries out the analysis of the bullfighting vocabulary used in Peninsular Spanish through its presence in the work Gatherings from Spain, published in 1846. The objective is twofold: on the one hand, to determine which linguistic mechanisms of translation are used by the author to transfer from Spanish to English such a tremendously rooted in the Spanish cultural heritage lexical field as bullfighting is; on the other, to establish the relationship between the type of original vocabulary and the mechanism used, depending on whether it is a terminological element or whether it consists of general vocabulary and/or non-specific popular expressions which refer to the bull as a cultural reference. In many cases, the incorporation of these elements into the target language through integrated borrowings or xenisms is observed, given the impossibility of achieving an equivalent translation.

Palavras-chave : Lexicology; translation mechanisms; cultural-specific items (CSIs); bullfighting; Richard Ford.
