Abstract: 目前关于影视文本中的幽默翻译研究不胜枚举,但关于方言幽默翻译的研究仍有不足。再者,鉴于如今影视领域的走向,为了提高观众的观片体验,其于方言片中的字幕偏好应受学术关注。本文透过个案研究的方式,以2013台语喜剧片《大尾鲈鳗》(以下简称《大》)为研究对象,调查并分析(一)本地观众对方言喜剧片的翻译字幕有何需求与偏好,与(二)观众方言熟练程度的不同是否会影响其对方言片中字幕翻译策略 (subtitling strategy, 以下简称 ‘SS’) 的偏好。为达本文之研究目的,本文以问卷调查的形式,访问了82名新加坡公民与永久居民,也将这82名参与者根据他们的方言熟练程度进行分类。据研究结果所示,方言程度与观众对方言喜剧片的字幕偏好拥有相互关系,而由于本地观众的方言程度并不一致,每一组观众都偏向不同的SS。综上,虽然本地观众对方言喜剧片的字幕需求与偏好因方言程度的不同而无法达到一致,但经本文研究发现每一类观众对不同的SS都有不同的评估标准。Presently, there are numerous studies discussing the issues of subtitling humour in audiovisual products. However, present research on subtitling dialect humour is scarce. Furthermore, in view of the current trend in dialect films, more research should be dedicated to audiences’ subtitling preferences in dialect films in order to enhance viewers’ filmgoing experience. Through a case study of a 2013 Taiwanese comedy film David Loman, this empirical study seeks to investigate (a) Singaporean audiences’ subtitling needs and preferences in the comprehension of dialect comedy films and (b) the relationship between dialect proficiency and Singaporean audiences’ subtitling preferences in dialect comedy films. For the purpose of this study, 82 Singapore citizens and permanent residents were recruited for an online questionnaire, and they were classified according to their dialect proficiency. An analysis of the responses shows that there is a correlation between dialect proficiency and subtitling preference. However, as different respondents have different dialect proficiencies, there is no one uniform preferred translation strategy. Overall, although audiences’ needs and preferences for subtitling in dialect comedies cannot be consistent due to the varying proficiency of dialect, this study has found that each group of audience possess a different evaluation criterion for different translation strategies.
