We are investigating the auditory and visual cues that facilitate the detection of ironic comments. In particular, we want to see whether they are cross-linguistically recognizable. In this survey, we present pairs of sentences uttered ironically and sincerely, and we ask to recognize the ironic one. The sentences are in Italian, and we want to see whether non-Italian speakers recognize irony.
Here are the links to the versions of the experiment we prepared. No knowledge of Italian is required!
