Once it became widely know that the “Erised” is “Desire” in reverse, something the translator probably didn’t know originally, that presented a different way to approach the translation of the name. I have bought these volumes as a Christmas gift for a young friend who is studying Spanish and hopes to do it at university later this year so I am really not in any position to comment until she has read them. The script book was published to mark the plays opening in 2016 and instantly topped the bestseller lists.

Settling on 3 variations, as I previously reported, came from an extra-linguistic clue: the ISBN numbers of the new illustrated editions. Even without a dictionary, and not (at first) picking up many of the words, the story was still there for me– by underlining the words I didn’t understand, or writing the meanings I had just discovered in the margin, I did what many other language students could do. Under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, she is the author of the highly acclaimed ‘Strike’ crime series, featuring private detective Cormoran Strike and his partner Robin Ellacott.For some newer editions, their regional availability seemed sufficient evidence to categorize them sight-unseen; those determinations should be considered less reliable than when I inspected the book for linguistic characteristics. Harry necesitará magia poderosa y verdaderos amigos para explorar los secretos más oscuros de Voldemort, mientras Dumbledore lo prepara para enfrentar su destino.

K. Rowling collaborated with playwright Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany to continue Harry’s story in a stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which opened in London, and is now thrilling audiences on four continents. My primary collecting interest is Linguistic, so on that basis alone, the differences in the first edition that I laid out above are on par with the regional variations in my opinion.

I can’t help reflecting that, after being read umpty-ump times, the Scholastic paperback that I bought in September of 2002 is still in one piece. After scouring the Internet, I found evidence of 32 separate editions of la Piedra Filosofal (full list below), two of which I owned. My apologies to the American edition, which I follow loosely below, and to those of you expecting something more profound like “There is no good and evil…” or “To the well organized mind….

Right above the ISBN barcode on the back cover of 978-84-9838-017-0 is a little Cono Sur which translates as “Southern Cone”, the common term for the pointy part of South America that includes Argentina, Chile and Uruguay.K. Rowling also wrote three short companion volumes for charity: Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, in aid of Comic Relief, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard, in aid of her international children’s charity, Lumos. I still don’t get why do they feel that pillastre is more common to the new generation than tunante, when both of them are pretty odd and uncommon in the everyday language (I’m 24) but anyway. It’s a little daunting and while I know lots of people that have the first book, I don’t know a lot that have the remainder. But again, once a translation has been edited and published, you don’t really expect that much variation in the final text from edition to edition. My assumption would be that any edition typeset after 2014 would have the revisions and, for example, the illustrated editions (2015) appear to (although I’ve only seen details of the European).
