RINALDI, Daniel. Phoenicopterus: etymological pun in Martial and problems of translation. Nova tellus [online]. 2010, vol.28, n.1, pp.19-49. ISSN 0185-3058.

In this article we study the etymological pun that Martial proposes for the word phoenicopterus in two epigrams. We also analyze the problems of translation (the difficulty of translating poetry) that this wordplay entails.

Keywords : Wordplays; etymological puns; Martial; etymology; poetics; rhetoric; stylistics; translation.
