Language and Humour in the Media provides new insights into the interface
between humour studies and media discourse analysis, connecting two areas of
scholarly interest that have not been studied extensively before. The volume
adopts a multi-disciplinary approach, concentrating on the various roles
humour plays in print and audiovisual media, the forms it takes, the purposes
it serves, the butts it targets, the implications it carries and the
differences it may assume across cultures.

The phenomena described range from conversational humour, canned jokes and
wordplay to humour in translation and news satire. The individual studies draw
their material for analysis from traditional print and broadcast media, such
as magazines, sitcoms, films and spoof news, as well as electronic and
internet-based media, such as emails, listserv messages, live blogs and online

The volume will be of primary interest to a wide range of researchers in the
fields of discourse analysis, sociolinguistics, intercultural studies,
pragmatics, communication studies, and rhetoric but it will also appeal to
scholars in the areas of media studies, psychology and crosscultural

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
