What is lost in translation?

kendall language

My project, titled Lost in Translation, asks participants (all of whom are bilingual, trilingual, etc) to come up with words or phrases that simply do not make it across the barrier from one language to another in a humorous way. I intend to examine differences in language and the subsequent gaps in communication through something all humans have in common: laughter. The information I compiled takes its final form in the context of video/audio and will feature subtitles and other explanatory text.
