Δεν τόλμησα να το προτείνω εξαρχής, διότι αντιλαμβάνομαι το πόσο δύσκολο είναι. Ωστόσο ήμουν βέβαιος πως κάθε μεταφραστής που 'χει φάει γερή πετριά, την ώρα που θα διάβαζε το κάθε λογοπαίγνιο θα προβληματιζόταν και σχετικά με τη μεταφραστική απόδοσή του. :)

Καλημέρα. Για να μη λιώσω σαν τον Ζάζουλα, τα λογοπαίγνια κιντλεροποιήθηκαν και η απόλαυσή τους θα γίνει στον σωστό τόπο και χρόνο.

Μπαίνω, βέβαια, σ' έναν πειρασμό, να ζητάμε από τα νέα μέλη να μεταφράζουν κι από ένα λογοπαίγνιο.

Προς το παρόν, θα ανέβω ένα σκαλί ακόμα και θα αναφέρω (για δεύτερη φορά) τους τομσουιφτισμούς, Tom Swifties (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Swifty):

A Tom Swifty (or Tom Swiftie) is a phrase in which a quoted sentence is linked by a pun to the manner in which it is attributed.

Τα παραδείγματα είναι της Wikipedia:


"I'll have a martini," said Tom dryly.
"Who left the toilet seat down?" Tom asked peevishly.
"Pass me the shellfish," said Tom crabbily.
"That's the last time I'll stick my arm in a lion's mouth," the lion-tamer said off-handedly.
"Can I go looking for the Grail again?" Tom requested.
"I unclogged the drain with a vacuum cleaner," said Tom succinctly.
"I might as well be dead," Tom croaked.
"We just struck oil!" Tom gushed.
"It's freezing," Tom muttered icily.
"They had to amputate them both at the ankles," said Tom defeatedly.
"Who discovered radium?" asked Marie curiously.
"The Battle of the Nile? A lot of fun!" said Lord Nelson disarmingly.
"Hurry up and get to the back of the ship," Tom said sternly.
"Is there a number between seven and nine?" Tom asked considerately.
"We could have made a fortune canning pineapples" Tom groaned dolefully.
The standard syntax is for the quoted sentence to be first, followed by the description of the act of speaking. The hypothetical speaker is usually, by convention, called "Tom" (or "he" or "she"), unless some other name is needed for the pun (as in the Marie Curie and Lord Nelson examples above).

Στο επόμενο μήνυμα θα πιάσουμε τα cryptic clues των σταυρολέξων.

Το 111 και το 124 είναι από τα πιο εύκολα για παράδειγμα, γιατί είναι φράσεις που τις χρησιμοποιούμε και στα ελληνικά.

124: Ο κλέφτης ενός ημερολογίου, έφαγε δώδεκα μήνες. (ένα πρόχειρο παράδειγμα)
111: Ποτέ μην επενδύεις σε γραφεία κηδειών. Είναι ένα νεκρό επάγγελμα. (ένα δεύτερο πρόχειρο παράδειγμα)

Δύσκολα είναι τα 110 και 112 για παράδειγμα, γιατί παίζουν και με τους ήχους και την αμφισημία των λέξεων.

Τέλος πάντων, σκεφτόμουν τώρα δα ένα λογοπαίγνιο στα ελληνικά — για πείτε μου αν είναι καλό:
Ο Κινέζος έμπορος που πρωτόφερε τα GPS στην Ελλάδα είπε: «Σαφέστατα πλοηγούμαστε του ανταγωνισμού.»

Το καλό λογοπαίγνιο φαίνεται όταν οι τρεις στους τέσσερις το προσπεράσουν χωρίς να καταλάβουν ότι είναι λογοπαίγνιο. Ίσως θα το καταλάβουν όταν δουν τον έναν στους τέσσερις να γελάει και αναρωτηθούν.

Το λογοπαίγνιο που εξαναγκάζει το γέλιο σου είναι το επιθεωρησιακό. Στην επιθεώρηση δεν μπορεί να το αμολάει και να κάθεται να κοιτάει γύρω γύρω ποιος θα γελάσει — αν και μερικές φορές το κάνουν κι αυτό.

Δεν σκεφτόμουν διπολικά. Αλλά, δυστυχώς, κατέθεσα διπολικά. Ε, τι θες τώρα, να περιγράψω το φάσμα του γκρίζου στο πεδίο του λογοπαίγνιου; :)

Άφησα τα υπόλοιπα για αργότερα, όταν δεν θα με ζουπάει αγρίως το πλάνο της ημέρας. Πάντως όσα πρόλαβα να δω είναι εξαιρετικά.

I'm always panting for puns, but it seems I came panting and blowing to this thread.

Για σεφτέ, δυο τρία που πήρε το μάτι μου στα γρήγορα και μου φάνηκαν εύκολα - πριν μελετήσω τα υπόλοιπα με τη δέουσα δαίουσα (http://lexilogia.gr/forum/showthread.php?5247-Genius-%CE%B1%CF%80%CF%8C-%CF%84%CE%BF%CE%BD-%CE%B3%CE%B5%CE%BD%CE%AD%CE%B8%CE%BB%CE%B9%CE%BF-%CE%B4%CE%B1%CE%AF%CE%BC%CE%BF%CE%BD%CE%B1-%CF%83%CF%84%CE%B7%CE%BD-%CE%B9%CE%B4%CE%B9%CE%BF%CF%86%CF%85%CE%90%CE%B1&p=53010&viewfull=1#post53010) προσοχή - τα εξής τέσσερα πέντε:

Jeff Kabacinski lightened his gentle criticism by ending his message, “though it does bring to mind that old chemistry joke,
‘If you’re not a part of the solution, you’re a part of the precipitate’.”

Raymond Noë wrote from The Netherlands concerning a headline he had seen in the New York Daily News of 26 June:
“Reading books will help shorten Brazilian prisoners’ sentences”. But as he says, improved literacy may equally result in their sentences getting longer.

On 29 June the Daily Telegraph told of a drunken night out before a friend’s impending marriage that ended in a prosecution for animal cruelty. Ian McIver was intrigued by this sentence: “Mr Hammond later studied the hotel’s CCTV and found footage of the Barnett brothers taking the hens up to the stag’s room after they claimed they had been egged on by others.”

Κι αν κι εσείς, όπως πολλοί ροκάδες, χάσατε το Rock (βράχος=σταθερότητα) και σας έμεινε το Roll (κύλισμα=προσαρμοστικότητα), ελάτε να βρείτε το Rock στους αγιορειτικούς βράχους, όπως χιλιάδες νεοέλληνες, ιδίως νέοι. Σίγουρα θα αισθανθείτε πάλι ρωμιός, θα σας βγεί το ρωμαίικο φιλότιμο και θα ακούσετε το ορθόδοξο «ρόκ του μέλλοντός μας».

Το λυσάρι: screwage (http://arnoldzwicky.org/2013/10/10/screwage/), Arnold Zwicky's Blog (mostly about language):

It turns out that screwage is attested in at least three senses, involving differet [sic] bases screw and different uses of the derivational suffix -age.

First, there’s the screwage the waiter intended, which is in OED2, where, however, it’s marked as rare:
The action or process of screwing.

with only one cite:
1865 T. Carlyle Hist. Friedrich II of Prussia VI. xx. vi. 146 The Butes and Hardwickes working incessantly with such rare power of leverage and screwage in the interior parts.


Then there’s the screwage the waiter was avoiding. From Spears’s Dictionary of American Slang and Colloquial Expressions, 4th ed. (2007):
copulation; acts of copulation; the people and actions of copulation: His mind is on nothing but “screwage” and how to get some of it.

(This has screw ‘fuck’.)

Finally, there’s a computer sense, which the Jargon File (12/1/94) characterizes as:
Like lossage but connotes that the failure is due to a designed-in misfeature rather than a simple inadequacy or a mere bug.

(This appears to have the screw of screw up.)

Δεν μπορώ, θα πω τι συνέβη προ ημερών που γυρίζαμε με μέλος του φόρουμ από τους Μόντι.

Είμαστε στο λεωφορείο και έχουμε κάτσει με την ΑΜ σε απέναντι καθίσματα στο διάδρομο. Δίπλα στην ΑΜ είναι ένα νεαρό κορίτσι. Κάποια στιγμή προσέχω το πόδι της καθώς το σταυρώνει πάνω από το άλλο γόνατο. Δίπλα στον αστράγαλο έχει φτιάξει ένα απλό τατουάζ με τον ελέφαντα μέσα στο φίδι που μοιάζει με καπέλο.
— Α, Εξιπερί, λέω στην ΑΜ.
— Ναι, το πρόσεξα πριν, μου λέει αυτή.
— Θα το έχει κάνει για να τεστάρει τα αρσενικά, λέω.
Πάει σε λίγο να κατέβει το κορίτσι, οπότε η ΑΜ τη ρωτάει:
— Πες μας γιατί μας έχει φάει η περιέργεια: πόσοι έχουν καταλάβει από πού είναι το τατουάζ σου;
— Ένας, λέει αυτή.
Οπότε αποφασίσαμε ότι το τεστ είναι δύσκολο.

Peak performance: The man who runs across mountains

(CNN)When presented with the challenge of crossing five alpine peaks, most people would probably choose to fly. Andreas Steindl wasn't one of them -- he ran.

Earlier this month, the 26-year-old athlete covered more than 30 treacherous kilometers from Zermatt to Saas Fee, Switzerland, on foot.

On the way, he crossed five 4,000-meter peaks including the Dom, the highest mountain in Switzerland, in just seven and three-quarter hours. [...]

Όπως λέει η Wikipedia, η ταινία ήταν καλύτερη από το σλόγκαν της σύμφωνα με τους κριτικούς (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chi-Raq#Reception), αλλά το κοινό ίσως διαφωνεί: 5,6/10 στο imdb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4594834/combined).

President Trump Orders the Execution of Five Turkeys Pardoned by Obama (http://realnewsrightnow.com/2017/01/president-trump-orders-execution-five-turkeys-pardoned-obama/)

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In another sweeping move aimed at undoing the perceived damage done by the Obama administration, President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday directing the Department of Justice to revoke all sixteen Thanksgiving Day turkey pardons issued by the former president during his eight years in office.

“After reviewing the decisions made by the previous administration, President Trump has determined that a number of turkey pardons issued by Barack Obama were done so in a manner that was both deceitful and hazardous to the American people,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced on Tuesday. “This morning, the president once again used his executive powers to see to it that justice is served and that the surviving creatures will be destroyed.”

Δεν ξέρω αν παρακολουθεί κανείς το The Good Place, αλλά ένα από τα αστεία της σειράς είναι ότι τα φαγάδικα που εμφανίζονται στο Καλό Μέρος έχουν συχνά κάποιο λογοπαίγνιο στο όνομά τους, όπως η πιτσαρία Hawaii 5-Dough ή το Sushi and the Banshees. Πολλά από αυτά είναι, προφανώς (και επίτηδες), απαίσια. Μπορείτε να δείτε εκτενή λίστα τέτοιων τροφολογοπαιγνίων εδώ (https://twitter.com/meganamram/status/913642289834090497).

ΥΓ: Μην ψάξετε για πρόσφατα άρθρα σχετικά με τη σειρά αν ενδιαφέρεστε να τη δείτε, γιατί τα spoiler αφθονούν. Πρόκειται για έξυπνη σειρά, γεμάτη ανατροπές, και αυτός είναι ένας από τους λόγους που τη συνιστώ. (Ένας άλλος: ο Τεντ Ντάνσον σε μεγάλα κέφια.)
