      * Apart from these, in most handbooks of translation, especially those dealing
      with literary translation, you will find comments on this issue.


      There are literally hundreds of publications on this issue. Perhaps you could
      also try in BITRA, first searching with the words Reader, then Audience, and
      then Reception in the field Title. You will find lots of possibilities and it
      will just be a question of making your own judgements and following the thread
      of the reference lists provided by the publications you like best.

      All the best,
      Javier Franco

      > Hi,
      > I am a PhD student. My research is about how Syrian translators bridge
      cultural gaps in English-Arabic translation. Part of my methodology was doing a
      questionnaire abouot the acceptability of endnotes that explain culture-specific
      concepts particularly allusions. Now, I am anlyzing the data I have collected.
      I am intetrested in whether endnotes could be of help to translators and
      readers. I am also interested in investigating reader-response theory in
      transaltion studies. I would like to know if anybody has any suggestions of any
      books or articles that could be of help to my research.
