Resumen:   The goal of the present thesis is to provide answers to two questions concerning at the same time English-German contrastive linguistics and translation studies. At first sight, these questions seem, if at all, only remotely connected: The first one is whether and how the English language influences the language system of German and the norms and conventions of language use in German. The second question is: What are the interdependencies between verbal and visual information in what are called "multimodal" texts (cf. Kress & van Leeuwen 1996), and how do they translate across languages and cultures? While the second question has up to now been rather rarely asked and to my knowledge never been thoroughly addressed, several more precise versions of the first one come to mind: Is it the commonly acknowledged status of the English language as a lingua franca in various areas of public life that makes German open up its language boundaries rather freely? Is it the often bemoaned pervasive presence of English loan words in many registers in spoken and written German which attracts an ever more increasing number of follow-up imports? Or is it that too many hurried translators involuntarily dissolve some of the systematic differences between English and German by producing 'bad', word-for-word translations which generate German neologisms by lexical German patterns of information organization, and push against the semantic selectional restrictions for participants subject position (cf. for example Doherty 1995; Hawkins 1986)? In this study, the issues of unidirectional cross-linguistic influence and the relation between the semiotic modes of image and language come together in an investigation which is intended to contribute to the question of language variation and language change in language contact via processes of translation. [...] The analyses in this study will be carried out on a diachronic corpus of popular English language motion pictures and their German-dubbed versions. For the analytic procedure itself a model of investigating language use in visual media will be developed in this study. [Source: Author]
