French In Springfield: A Variationist Analysis Of The Translation Of First-Person Singular Future Actions In The Quebec And French Dubbings Of The Simpsons, Jean-Guy Mboudjeke Jan 2016

French In Springfield: A Variationist Analysis Of The Translation Of First-Person Singular Future Actions In The Quebec And French Dubbings Of The Simpsons, Jean-Guy Mboudjeke

Languages, Literatures and Cultures Publications

This article follows on from Plourde’s work to the extent that it uses the French and Quebec dubbings of The Simpsons as a springboard to address a broader question.

In some recent scholarship it has been suggested that ancient Greeks commonly drank beer. However, a careful examination of ancient sources, both for negative evidence (the lack of references to beer-making and beer-drinking among Greeks) as well as for positive evidence (the mentions of beer as a foreign product), supports the commonly held belief that Greeks in the archaic and classical periods did not regularly drink beer. There is also no evidence that kykeon was a type of beer.
