This book studies interpreting between languages as a discourse process and as about managing communication between two people who do not speak a common language. Roy examines the turn exchanges of a face-to-face interpreted event in order to offer a definition of interpreted events, describe the process of taking turns with an interpreter, and account for the role of the interpreter in terms of the performance in interaction.

"This is a useful text for interpreters and interpreter trainers alike, and it would be excellent required reading in graduate classes in interpreting (both practice and theory) as an introduction to the importance and relevance of discourse approaches to the field."--Language in Society "Roy's work is groundbreaking in its premise that interpretation, far from occurring in a neutral, noninvolved manner, involves an active, direct interlocutor who is constantly shifting roles, aligning herself or himself with primary interlocutors, and managing the flow of conversation....This is a useful text for interpreters and interpreter trainers alike, and it would be an excellent required reading in graduate classes in interpreting (both practice and theory) as an introduction to the importance and relevance of discourse approaches to the field."--Language in Society "This is a useful text for interpreters and interpreter trainers alike, and it would be excellent required reading in graduate classes in interpreting (both practice and theory) as an introduction to the importance and relevance of discourse approaches to the field."--Language in Society "Roy's work is groundbreaking in its premise that interpretation, far from occurring in a neutral, noninvolved manner, involves an active, direct interlocutor who is constantly shifting roles, aligning herself or himself with primary interlocutors, and managing the flow of the conversation...This is a useful text for interpreters and interpreter trainers alike, and it would be excellent required reading in graduate classes in interpreting (both practice and theory) as an introduction to the importance and relevance of discourse approaches to the field. [Roy's] analysis is rich and eloquently demonstrates the wealth of information that can be extracted from one brief speech event."--Language in Society
