Ask-A-Linguist Message Details

Subject: Literature/drama and linguistics
Question: Hello,

I am a PhD student and I am currently working on Harold Pinter's
dramatic discourse and the relevance of irony in his plays. I intend to
analyse the choosen plays linguistically and pragmatically (chosing a
linguistic theory and framework).

I would be more than pleased to help me choose the most applicable
theory for such a delicate topic.

Thanks in advance!

Reply: I suggest that you start with the work of Ann Banfield.
