In this book, an in depth analysis of the terms mishandeling in Dutch law and assault in British and American law is drawn, to ascertain whether these terms could function as translations for each other. The hypothesis is that these terms may be significantly different, and are therefore not suitable as translations for each other. Studies on equivalence and the componential analysis by Nida and the prototype analysis by Rosch serve as a theoretical framework for the comparison, as well as the legal context of the terminology. It may be concluded from the analysis that Dutch mishandeling and American assault may be used as translations for each other, but British assault is significantly different from these terms. Other translations are offered to solve this issue.
