AudioVisualTranslation_Pizza episode

Hi guys!


We shall take up only a couple of minutes of your time to focus your attention on a cartoon and short questionnaire, which is part of a project, supervised by the AudioVisualTranslation Research Group, University of Salento, Lecce, Italy.


The cartoon under study is Masjanja, a Russian cartoon, created in 2001. Some Masjanja episodes have already been translated into English, either subtitled or dubbed. Our aim is to investigate the effect Masjanja produces on other target languages' audience, first YouTube users, then AVT researchers, linguists, translators...

Will this strange creature be comprehensible to the new audience? Will Masjanja's particularly Russian irony be able to go beyond the Iron Curtain?


The questionnaires, we are kindly asking you to answer, focus on the English versions of the episode “Pizza”, both subtitled and dubbed.

Could you then send your completed questionnaire to avtranslator@gmail.com.

Please, let your friends and relatives know about our project and support us by simply answering a few questions!


And if you know Russian, have a look at our community!!!


Thank you, and.... enjoy the show!


University of Salento, AVT Research Group

Mirror, mirror on the wall...
You know how, when you look in a mirror and raise your left hand, your reflection appears to raise its right hand? So, why is it that a mirror reverses left and right, but not up and down?

Is the use of "whinging" in place of "whining" some sort of deliberate fashionable mispelling or is the world that full of ignorant louts?

QUERY: High Maintenance Relationships
How do you define “high maintenance” in terms of partners or relationships?

What kinds of high-maintenance people or relationships are worth the trouble to you?

Are you how- or low-maintenance?

Do your friends and family and partners agree?

Does the need for spontaneous romantic gestures make someone high-maintenance?

Because No Grown Woman Should Be Forced to Wear Pink
Having breast cancer is bad enough. Being inundated with a lot of tacky Mary Kay-tinted ribbons is adding insult to injury.

Some of us look better in terra cotta.

In honor of red_frog's mother, who was recently diagnosed. And for my mother and grandmother, and for zillah975 and gramina's wonderfully feisty mother -- all of whom are doing fine now.
