Abstract [en]

This article summarizes the main findings and insights of the doctoral dissertation Shun the Pun, Recue the Rhyme: The Dubbing and Subtitling of Language-Play in Film. The phenomenon of language-play is defined and categorized, and around one thousand instances of authentic language-play occurring in 18 English-language family films are analyzed, together with the translation solutions in the German and Swedish dubbing of these films, as well as the German, Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian subtitles. One of the many insights gained from the study is that, contrary to common perception, language-play need not be 'untranslatable', not even in a narrow sense.
