Pragmalinguistic, cognitive and cross-cultural aspect of modern anecdote

Бесплатный доступ

This article is devoted to the consideration of pragmatic, cognitive and cross-cultural characteristics of modern anecdote. The performance of a joke follows the pattern for storytelling generally; the major difference consists in the expectation of laughter at the conclusion. Jokes are told as 'understanding tests', since not everyone necessarily gets every joke, and getting jokes involves background knowledge and rational processing.
