Kusters, Annelies; Fenlon, Jordan – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2022
Historically, fictional productions which use sign language have often begun with scripts that use the written version of a spoken language.

Pavesi, Maria; Formentelli, Maicol – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019

In film they are prime ways of staging conflict or jocular abuse, reflecting everyday communicative practices while contributing to the emotionality of dialogue, characterisation and plot advancement. Both original and dubbed films offer a privileged perspective to…

Ahmed, Mohamed A. H. – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2018
The translation of bilingual literary texts may challenge a translator when s/he needs to transfer some embedded, foreign codes from a language other than the dominant language of the source text (ST) into the target text (TT).
