Poetry Translation and Computational Linguistics: A Dialog
This study establishes a dialog between poetry translation and Computational Linguistics. Annotation is one of
the activities of Computational Linguistics, which identifies and classifies a certain linguistic phenomenon, using labels,
tags, categories, in a given corpus, so as to achieve a certain goal. In this paper, annotation is used to show some semanticlexical
aspects of an original poem in English which were altered, omitted, added, inverted, in the Portuguese translation.
The aim of this paper is to show the convergences and divergences between two different annotations of the same original
and translation, highlighting, thus, the imprecision of the categories used.
Keywords - Poetry Translation, Computational Linguistics, Annotation.
