Translating Caribbean Orality

Abstract : This paper proposes to show how dialogues introduce the various levels of the local society, each character being identifiable not only by the specificities representative of his or her group and age, but also by his/her idiosyncracies. Consequently, the translator who aims at rendering all the wealth and subtleties of the language is confronted with the task of first making out and then preserving these differences. This implies his/her constantly shifting signs on the various language axes, mostly implying grammatical and lexical transfers.
