A Study on the English Translation of the Three-Body Problems’ Terms from the Perspective of Cognitive Terminology

Wenting Wang


The emergence of the The Three-Body Problem series has reintroduced the marginalized literary genre into the critics’ field of view. The story background of the first part of The Three-Body Problem takes place during the Cultural Revolution.

Taking cognitive linguistics as an entry point, this paper attempts to describe how cognitive linguistics can guide translators to translate, in order to provide theoretical reference for the translation practice of science fiction works.
