Title :A Relevance-Theoretic Approach to the Effective Use of Lexical Information,Visual Information, and English-Japanese Translation in Cross-Cultural Understanding
Authors :Yoshiyuki OKAURA
Issue Date :Sep-2019
Abstract :The purpose of this research is to demonstrate to what degree lexical information, visual information, and English-Japanese translation contribute to the English learners’ understanding of cross-culture in the framework of Relevance Theory. We construct two types of questionnaire asking 38 English learners about their existing knowledge of “How pure maple syrup is made,” and about how much they understand its production process at the four stages. We conclude that lexical information, visual information, and English-Japanese translation make positive influences on learners’ cross-cultural understanding by satisfying the Communicative Principle of Relevance.
