Reviews

The book Interjections, Translation, and Translanguaging is an exhaustive exploration of expressions, language adaptation and interjection, which the author reminds us from the outset Our lives and daily newspapers would be unimaginable without interjections (p. 41). The book unveils the global expansion and differentiation of interjections and translanguaging opening up whole new expressions of language, its interpretation and its understanding. Most importantly, it goes beyond the fixation of an English only examination and seeks out interjections in a host of languages and quasi languages. The book shows us how interjections are not just something of today but have been with us throughout history. One can only suspect that new modes of interjection will proliferate even further as technical expressions emerge from social media use and acquire even greater uniqueness if not acceptance. -- Bruno Mascitelli, Swinburne University of Technology

Interesting, lively, academic, with a lovely touch of humour. -- Rajendra Chetty, English Academy of Southern Africa Masiola not only redresses the lack of attention given to the phenomenon of interjections in general but is able to show its crucial significance in the translation task. She draws upon a wide range of works and presents her arguments in a clear and incisive manner. Indispensable reading! -- Adolfo Gentile, Monash University
