Synopsis:

Irony in Language and Thought assembles an interdisciplinary collection of seminal empirical and theoretical papers on irony in language and thought into one comprehensive book. A much-needed resource in the area of figurative language, this volume centers on a theme from cognitive science - that irony is a fundamental way of thinking about the human experience. The editors lend perspective in the form of opening and closing chapters, which enable readers to see how such works have furthered the field, as well as to inspire present and future scholars.

Featured articles focus on the following topics:

  • theories of irony, addressing primarily comprehension of its verbal form
  • context in irony comprehension
  • social functions of irony
  • the development of irony understanding
  • situational irony.

Scholars and students in psychology, linguistics, philosophy, literature, anthropology, artificial intelligence, art, and communications will consider this book an excellent resource. It serves as an ideal supplement in courses that present major ideas in language and thought.

He is previously the author of The Poetics of Mind and Understanding and Intentions in the Experience of Meaning. He is co-editor (with G.
