Hi Peter,

I am following the current thread with interest. I
havent read Gutt -- does this treatment differ from
the application of RT found in Sperber and Wilson?

Thanks for the clarification.

I would recommend that you look at: E-A. Gutt,
Translation and
Relevance: Cognition and Context, 2nd edition, St.
Jerome, Manchester 2000. This starts with a clear
introduction to the theory as a whole, partly in the
context of biblical texts. I disagree with how Gutt
has applied it to translation, but that is the thrust
of my paper.
