Linguistic LingField(s):  Phonetics

Query:   I am looking for recordings of English speech sounds for a college
undergraduate English phonetics course. In order to display the
phonetic differences between world Englishes to students, I'd prefer
exactly the same texts read by American English speakers, British
English speakers, Australian English speakers, etc. If you have any
information about such recordings, please let me know. Later, I'll
post them here on the Linguist List. Thank you.

Qs: Pragmatics of translation

My name is Nadira Abdurakhmanova. I am from Uzbekistan. My research is
devoted to stylistic adequacy of literary translation. One of the
issues which I am going to research is the pragmatic and cognitive
aspects of translation. What do you understand by ''pragmatics of
translation''? Any answers, references, advice are appreciated much.
Besides, I will be very happy to contact researchers, interested in
the stylistic problems of literary translation; interdisciplinary
(pragmatics, discourse analysis, cognition, ethnolinguistics) approach
to literary translation.

And do you know any published literary pieces translated from Uzbek
language into English?

Thanks in advance

Best regards,
