On Theme/Rheme as Unit of Translation

Liu Shi_cong1, Yu Dong2(1.College of Foreign Languages, Nankai University, Tianjin 300071; 2. Guangzhou Teachers' College, Guangdong 510405, China)  
Based on the theory of "functional sentence perspective" and of translation as a thinking process, this essay suggests that theme/rheme be used as a translation unit. In structure, theme/rheme serves as a building block and, by means of analysis of communication function within the discourse, it provides a better understanding of the text. Therefore, as a unit of analysis and a unit of transformation in translation, theme/rheme has its advantages.
