Abstract:

This is the first edited volume dedicated specifically to humor in
interaction. It is a rich collection of essays by an international array of
scholars representing various theoretical perspectives, but all concerned
with interactional aspects of humor. The contributors are scholars active
both in the interdisciplinary area of humor studies and in adjacent
disciplines such as linguistic pragmatics, sociolinguistics, discourse
analysis, psycholinguistics, gender and translation studies. The volume
effectively offers an overview of the range of phenomena falling in the
broad category of 'conversational humor', and convincingly argues for the
many different functions humor can fulfill, bypassing simplistic humor
theories reducing humor to one function. All the articles draw on empirical
material from different countries and cultures, comprising conversations
among friends and family, talk in workplace situations, humor in
educational settings, and experimental approaches to humor in interaction.
The book is sure to become an important reference and source of inspiration
for scholars in the various subfields of humor studies, pragmatics and
(socio-)linguistics.
