Abstract

Dialogue is the most important and wonderful part of the novel. Dialogue has its communicative, sociocultural and verbal features and it plays an important role in revealing the character’s personality, reflecting the social reality, attracting the reader’s attention and advancing the story plot. Adaptation Theory was put forward by Verschueren in 1999. The key of the theory is that language use is a process of making dynamic adaptations and it emphasizes that the process of language use is a continuous linguistic choice based on the inside and outside surroundings of language with different degrees of salience. This paper attempts to investigate novel dialogue translation from the perspective of Verschueren’s adaptation theory.
