Abstract

Translating Indonesian reduplications into English is not an easy matter due to the difference in<br/>morphological form, syntactic function and semantic meaning of reduplications in both languages. For example,<br/>the phrase ‘jauh-jauh hari’ cannot be translated into ‘far-far day’. This translation is not acceptable since it<br/>follows exactly the form of the original text, or only focusing on the morphological form, while the other two<br/>factors are disregarded. Thus, in assessing the acceptability of the translation, those three factors should be<br/>considered. However, the acceptability of the translation can also be checked by comparing the translations with<br/>the corpus. This article analyzes the translations of 3 Indonesian reduplications by 50 university students and<br/>compares their translations with similar expressions found in COCA and BNC to find out the degree of<br/>acceptability of the translations. The results show which translations are acceptable and which are not based on<br/>the frequency of usage.
