Abstract:

This edited volume brings together a range of contributions solely on the
linguistics of humour. Rather than favour one approach, this collection of
articles gives a state-of-the-art picture of current directions in pragmatic
humour studies. The contributors assume multifarious theoretical
perspectives and discuss a wide array of issues germane to different types of
humour across discourse domains. Consequently, the whole gamut of
humorous forms and mechanisms are elucidated, such as surrealist irony,
incongruity in register humour, mechanisms of pun formation, as well as
interpersonal functions of conversational humour. In addition, the papers
address diversified manifestations of humour, such as puns in Shakespeare's
plays, gendered jokes on the Internet, sexuality in anti-proverbs, Woody
Allen's prose, humour in "Friends", and parody by Monty Python's Flying
Circus. Most importantly, the chapters offer new research findings and
advocate novel theoretical conceptualisations of humorous phenomena,
drawing on the wealth of existing scholarship. Therefore, the volume is bound
to serve as a well of knowledge and inspiration for both seasoned and
beginning researchers with interests in the pragmatics of humour.
