ABSTRACT

This study explores the notion and the role of context in consecutive interpretation. Quantitative analysis of 7 students' IPDR(Integrated Problem and Decision Reporting) executed as self assessment homework for Specialized Interpretation (Social Affairs & Culture and Science & Technology) was performed. The result was categorized in terms of subject knowledge/ background knowledge, linguistic features and speech situation. The result reveals that interpretation is a complex cognitive behavior which requires an understanding of sense and a reformulation on the basis of the discourse context. Thus, the interpreting student should be made aware that interpreting is a communicative/context sensitive approach and be trained to assume that interpreting requires some manipulation to make the communication effective.
