'I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin. The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.

At once joyous and haunting, THE SLOW REGARD OF SILENT THINGS is a rich, atmospheric and lyrical tale, featuring one of the most beloved characters from Rothfuss' acclaimed fantasy series.

The following dissertation deals with the translation analysis of neological terms found in the fantasy novel, The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss, in relation to the Slovenian translation made by Sergej Hvala. In accordance with Newmark's theory of translation criticism, thirty-two terms and expressions have been selected. Since all terms are neological and the languages concerned are English and Slovenian, the translation process is expected to be easier when formation of new compounds is required, but more challenging in cases of single-word counterparts which should semantically correspond to the original term. The analysis proves that Slovenian is a flexible language, able to form and accept new coinages; however, the Slavic origin of the language, which seldom offers straight-forward solutions with complete semantic agreement, makes the translation procedure more difficult. The translator follows Newmark's rule of translating SL neologism with a TL neologism, and solves translation problems in an innovative way, only rarely applying the method of transference. The translation is very rich in terms of wordplay and thus enhances the reading experience.
