      AB: Abstract
      Slobin (1991, 1996, 1997) has argued that the typological
      differences between languages with either a satellite-framed or a
      verb-framed lexicalization pattern (Talmy, 2000) have important
      discourse & rhetorical consequences for the expression of "paths
      of movement" & "manner of movement." These differences are
      especially significant for the translator since s/he has to adapt
      the rhetorical style of the source language to that of the target
      language. According to Slobin (1996, 2000, ms.), the major
      difference lies in the loss or gain of information about path &
      manner specifications during the translation process. We will
      focus on three languages, English (satellite-framed), Spanish, &
      Basque (both verb-framed but with important intratypological
      differences). Basing ourselves on data from translations of the
      English text (Tolkien's The Hobbit) into these two target
      languages, we will compare & analyze in detail the different
      strategies that Spanish & Basque translators follow when adapting
      the English text to the stylistic & typological characteristics of
      their own languages. 7 Tables, 2 Appendixes, 16 References.
