I am compiling a corpus of original film titles in English which contain
puns or some type of wordplay in order to analyse how they have been
translated into Spanish. Could anybody suggest titles of this type to me?
There are some titles which I am not sure about, such as ''The Crying
Game'' (Neil Jordan, 1994), ''The in-laws'' (Andrew Fleming, 2003), or
''The shipping news'' (Lasse Hallström, 2001). Do you think they contain
any type of pun?
Any references on this topic would be very welcome.
Thanks very much in advance for your help,
