Abstract

As the language of TV dubbing has remained an important model for the Italian language, this paper compares the Italian-dubbed American TV serials with serials from different periods. The hypothesis is that Toury's laws of translational behavior (1995) have more impact on contemporary dubbed serials than on those of the past, thus determining more important effects of linguistic contact. Therefore, features of the source text could have a stronger influence on the target text, and "translation universais" could become more evident. The diachronic analysis of a corpus of TV serials reveals a major presence of English in modern TV language dubbed in Italian, for both external and internal elements (i.e., syntactic structures and lexical caiques, respectively), and, especially, a rise in language's predictability. The research also reveals a complex intersection between positive and negative interferences of English on I
