Contrasting Visual and Verbal Cueing of Space:
strategies and devices in the audio description of film

In this article Maija Hirvonen studies audio description. She compares visual and verbal representation in the context of narrative film in which space is strongly cued through the visual channel. The focus is on shot distance, which controls the amount of space visible in a shot. The study analyses how shot distance is reflected in audio description by syntactic and semantic means. The study aims to show how audio description can make use of diverse representational strategies and linguistic devices in rendering shot distance.
