Metapragmatics of Humor: Current research trends (IVITRA Research in Linguistics and Literature) by Leonor Ruiz-Gurillo (Editor)
Metapragmatics of Humor: Current research trends contributes to a new area in the pragmatics of humor: its conception as a metapragmatic ability. The book collects thirteen chapters organized into three parts: Revisions and applications of General Theory of Verbal Humor (GTVH) in a metapragmatic context; Metapragmatic awareness of humor across textual modes; and Metapragmatic practices within the acquisition of humor. Thus, this book provides an up-to-date panorama of this field, where metapragmatic abilities are described in adults as well as in children, on humorous and non-humorous genres ― jokes, cartoons, humorous monologues, parodies, conversation, Twitter ―, and using several approaches, such as GTVH, multimodality, conversational analysis, eye-tracking methodology, etc.
