Категория рода и иньянская концепция вьетнамского языка
As quite many languages of the world, Vietnamese lacks gender. The translation into Vietnamese of European and Russian literary texts where romantic relationships are personalized in inanimate objects and thus require the gender identification often appears challenging by this reason. This article discusses the ways to overcome this issue, first of all through the use of lexical indicators of gender which this language is well-stocked with. However, apart from the lexical structures, Vietnamese has an underlying principle which enables more insightful perception of reality by its speakers. This refers to the Confucian philosophical idea of Yin and Yang as it is refracted in Vietnamese adding the gender differences.
