The aim of this workshop is to familiarize participants with the construal, translation and reception of implicit film dialogue meaning by filmmakers, subtitlers and audiences, respectively. Through a series of hands-on exercises, participants will be introduced to the particularities of investigating implicatures in the polysemiotic and cross-cultural environment of subtitled films as well as to specific methodological tools for testing utterance comprehension by actual audiences. The primary focus will be on questionnaire design and experimental data analysis.
