Researching Humour in Context

Researching Humour in Context Research on humour has developed enormously in the last few years, but the scope of its analysis has also broadened in a similar fashion. The papers collected in the reviewed volume do cover most of the research issues that any pragmatics of humour should address, even if this collection of articles exhibits a certain degree of heterogeneity. However, there is a unifying link among the chapters in the authors’ willingness to treat humour as necessarily contextualized and also to take into account both underlying humorous intentions and the quality of interpretations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Review of Pragmatics Brill

Abstract

Research on humour has developed enormously in the last few years, but the scope of its analysis has also broadened in a similar fashion. The papers collected in the reviewed volume do cover most of the research issues that any pragmatics of humour should address, even if this collection of articles exhibits a certain degree of heterogeneity. However, there is a unifying link among the chapters in the authors’ willingness to treat humour as necessarily contextualized and also to take into account both underlying humorous intentions and the quality of interpretations.
