Dollerup, Cay; And Others
This paper briefly reviews the state of the art in reader response research with special reference to the Danish studies in reader responses. The paper then proceeds to a discussion of a number of methodological problems inherent in setting up questions for cross-cultural (and international) studies in general, and for reader response studies in particular. The paper concludes with the first version of the questionnaire used in the "Folktale project" and describes the outcome of the test of the questionnaire with various groups of Danish readers. (Seventeen references, an appendix of data, 14 related publications of the Folktale project, and an overview of the Folktale project as of October, 1989 are attached.) (Author/RS)
