Example text

With warm feelings I acknowledge the support of all my friends and colleagues at the Helsinki University English department, the Kouvola department of translation studies, and other university departments throughout Finland. I would like to thank especially those who, as native speakers of English, gave me access to their responses to allusions. I also wish to express my sincere thanks for their cooperation to the translators Elsa Carroll, Liisa Hakola, Erkki Jukarainen, Kalevi Nyytäjä, Eila Salminen and Anna-Laura Talvio 'Elone, who kindly agreed to be interviewed for this study.

In the context, however, the first allusion, which occurred in a British cinematic version of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac, will, if its source is recognised by the receiver, actualise Marlowe's Dr Faustus and therefore allow for a rich interpretation involving both mock-heroism and tragedy.

The term 'culture bump' has been used by Carol M. Archer (1986:170-1) of problems in face-to-face intercultural communication which are milder than culture shocks: 'A culture bump occurs when an individual finds himself or herself in a different, strange, or uncomfortable situation when interacting with persons of a different culture'. I have extended the use of her term to translation, for a situation where the reader of a TT has a problem understanding a source-cultural allusion. Such an allusion may well fail to function in the TT, as it is not part of the TL reader's culture.
