Resumen:   This is a study concerned with the translation of formulaic expressions (FEs) and modifications (MODs) from English into Swedish in the following plays by Harold Pinter: The Birthday Party (1958), The Caretaker (1960), The Homecoming (1965), No Man’s Land (1975) and Moonlight (1993).
Chapter I outlines the characteristics of the language of Pinter’s plays. The findings of linguistic and biographical research related to Pinter are presented in order for a satisfactory understanding of the language of Pinter’s plays to be obtained.
Chapter II investigates the critical reception of Pinter’s plays in the UK, the USA, France and Sweden. Research findings obtained are presented in order to establish the problems presented by the source texts (STs) with respect to their comprehension and the difficulty of identifying FEs and MODS in five plays by Pinter.
In Chapter III, the terms cultural and linguistic FEs are defined and a framework for different types of FEs and MODs is introduced. In addition, proposed guidelines, options and strategies for the translation of FEs and MODs are presented. These are then applied to actual translation examples in Chapter IV, which is a comparative analysis of the English STs and the Swedish target texts (TTs). The emphasis i son assessing the translation of FEs and MODs in the five plays by Pinter mentioned above, illustrating the conclusions drawn with the help of examples.
Chapter V presents the findings of a questionnaire that was carried out in order to obtain qualitative data, which would indicate whether a group of native speakers of English would have difficulties identifying a selection of FEs and MODs in five plays by Pinter. [Source: Author]
