Sample text

Based on his argument, Becher (ibid: 8) suggested that ‘Blum-Kulka’s Explicitation Hypothesis should be abandoned entirely and no longer investigated, at least not in its present form’. 2 Asymmetry hypothesis While the above three scholars argued against the hypothesis, some other translation scholars chose to shift their attention to broadening the field of explicitation beyond the confinement of redundancy and intangible cohesive pointers. Klaudy (2005), perhaps one of the most proactive scholars in favor of such an expansion, focused on implicitation as an integral part of her research on explicitation instead.

This argument may be stated as the explicitation hypothesis, which postulates an observed cohesive explicitness from SL to TL texts regardless of the increase traceable to differences between the two linguistic and textual systems involved. It follows that explicitness is viewed here as inherent in the process of translation. (Blum-Kulka 1986: 292) This hypothesis can be interpreted at least from the following two aspects. First, explicitation takes place on the discourse level, that is, ‘explicitation connected with shifts of cohesion and coherence (overt and covert textual markers) in translation’ (Klaudy 2008: 81).

5) Papai (2004) carried out a research based on an English-Hungarian parallel corpus and a comparable corpus of translated and non-translated Hungarian texts. Her analysis of the parallel corpus revealed altogether sixteen explicitation shifts at the logical-visual, lexical-grammatical, syntactic, textual and extra-linguistic levels. According to her, with these explicitation shifts established, explicitation seems to be a strong tendency in the English-Hungarian direction. Then, her analysis of the comparable corpus showed that most of the features in the translations are more explicit than those in the non-translated texts.
