A Lost Opportunity : The Flawed Implementation of Assertive Multilateralism (1991-1993)

A Lost Opportunity : The Flawed Implementation of Assertive Multilateralism (1991-1993) | here and there | Scoop.it
Bill Clinton did not seek the presidency to initiate an activist foreign policy in the aftermath of the Cold War, but instead to champion domestic affairs and economic renewal. However, his foreign policy advisers entered office with their own, often differing, interpretations of the United States’ position in the post-Cold War era. After the unity demonstrated by the Gulf War, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations advocated a tactic of Assertive Multilateralism with which to provide inte...

Gallery immagini 50 anglicismi di cui potete anche fare a meno | here and there | Scoop.it
Italians do it better. Anzi, no, sono gli inglesi a farlo meglio. Nel linguaggio d’uso corrente sembra esserci un po’ di confusione, forse alimentata da una consolidata inclinazione italica all’esterofilia. Risultato? Usiamo molti anglicismi che invece possono essere evitati.

Is It Simple or Difficult to Translate Recipes?

I’ve actually seen people react to my profession as if I were some sort of mad genius, assuming that I could glance at any writing in any language and instantly offer up a translation. Even those with a slightly less magical-realism-based concept of language translation – those who accept that I’m only qualified to translate in a very short list of language pairs, and of those only one professionally – there is still often the assumption that within those language pairs I can basically translate any text.

Latino o inglese?
In un bel libro di ormai venticinque anni fa, Gian Luigi Beccaria, con il suo stile amabile e accattivante, si era divertito a costruire cinque pagine di testo di senso compiuto infarcito di ben 175 latinismi diffusi e usati nell’italiano comune: da gratis, alibi, placet, ad hoc, non plus ultra, hic et nunc fino a pro memoria, honoris causa, referendum, imprimatur e moltiss...
