    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    The teaching and learning of interpreting has a short history. Although interpreting has shadowed human activity throughout the ages, the first practitioners of interpreting were people with language skills, but without training in interpreting. As has been observed in more recent times, these “natural” or “lay” interpreters would interpret intuitively; subsequently, knowledge acquired through personal experience might be shared with others beginning to interpret, as master to novice.
