To achieve these objectives, humorous chunks of the films were classified according to Martinez' taxonomy of humor (2005), which are, Community and Institution based humor, Community-Sense of humor, Linguistic based humor, Visual humor, Graphic humor, Paralinguistic humor, Sound based humor, and Non-Marked humor. The data were gathered from three American films; The Mask, Dumb & Dumber and Shrek which were dubbed and subtitled into Persian. To gather the data, the humorous chunks were extracted. Then, the corresponding Persian translations, both in dubbed and subtitled versions, were identified, compared and contrasted with their original version to discover the translation strategies used in both versions.
