It will take only 15 minutes to perform.

My thesis concerns irony comprehension and reaction time connectedwith processing the irony. I need to know whether the sentences areironic or not in the questionnaire. The sentences will be used in myresearch.

Thank you for your helpSylwia HermaszewskaAdam Mickiewicz University
