Ver­bal irony pro­cess­ingBuchcover
Iron­ic lan­guage is a salient reminder that speak­ers of all lan­guages do not always mean what they say. While iron­ic lan­guage has cap­tured the atten­tion of the­o­rists and schol­ars for cen­turies, it is only since the 1980s that psy­cholin­guis­tic meth­ods have been employed to inves­ti­gate how read­ers and hear­ers detect, process, and com­pre­hend iron­ic lan­guage. This Ele­ment reviews the foun­da­tion­al def­i­n­i­tions, the­o­ries, and psy­cholin­guis­tic mod­els of iron­ic lan­guage, cov­er­ing key ques­tions such as the dis­tinc­tion between lit­er­al and iron­ic mean­ing, the role of con­tex­tu­al infor­ma­tion dur­ing irony pro­cess­ing, and the cog­ni­tive mech­a­nisms involved. These key ques­tions con­tin­ue to moti­vate new stud­ies and method­olog­i­cal inno­va­tions, pro­vid­ing ample oppor­tu­ni­ty for future researchers who wish to con­tin­ue explor­ing how iron­ic lan­guage is processed and under­stood.

The Deep: A Com­pan­ion
BuchcoverWhat’s in the Deep?
This com­pan­ion explores the myths and leg­ends of mer­folk and sea mon­sters to nav­i­gate our tran­scul­tur­al pasts and envi­ron­men­tal presents and explain our end­less fas­ci­na­tion with the sea. More than any oth­er time in human his­to­ry, our rela­tion­ship to the oceans and the crea­tures of the Deep has come into focus, not just as an envi­ron­ment to be explored, exploit­ed and, more recent­ly, poi­soned, but as source of both our deep­est anx­i­eties and pos­si­ble futures.
In 31 orig­i­nal essays by experts in their respec­tive fields, the Deep is brought to life, from rep­re­sen­ta­tions of mytho­log­i­cal sea crea­tures to present-day visions of the blue envi­ron­ment. As our place in the world and our effects upon it become increas­ing­ly con­tentious, The Deep offers ways in which we might re-expe­ri­ence and realign our­selves to the watery world that cov­ers the major­i­ty of the earth’s sur­face and become part of a shared, more eco­log­i­cal, future.
