ABSTRACT

Audio Subtitling (AST) is a spoken or aural rendering of subtitles. When combined with Audio Description (AD), AST is aimed at blind and partially sighted audiences. Based on the types of multimodal cohesion suggested by Reviers and Remael (2015), the study aims to examine the multimodal cohesion formed between AST and AD in Okja (2017), Minari (2020) and Space Sweepers (2021). Generally speaking, referents are cataphorically identified by the AD, as the visual-verbal links in subtitled films are usually anaphoric. However, other types of multimodal cohesion are identified. The results show five different types of multimodal cohesion: cataphoric reference, anaphoric reference, linguistic cohesion, substitution and complementarity. Further research is needed to evaluate the extent of multimodal cohesion created between AST and AD in an audio described version.
