    Non-Literalness and Non-Bona-Fîde in Language: An Approach to Formal and Computational Treatments of Humor.Victor Raskin & Salvatore Attardo - 1994 - Pragmatics and Cognition 2 (1):31-69.
    The paper is devoted to the study of humor as an important pragmatic phenomenon bearing on cognition, and, more specifically, as a cooperative mode of non-bona-fide communication. Several computational models of humor are presented in increasing order of complexity and shown to reveal important cognitive structures in jokes. On the basis of these limited implementations, the concept of a full-fledged computational model for the understanding and generation of humor is introduced and discussed in various aspects. The model draws upon the (...)

    Prosodic and Multimodal Markers of Humor in Conversation.Salvatore Attardo, Lucy Pickering & Amanda Baker - 2011 - Pragmatics and Cognition 19 (2):224-247.
    This case study extends the findings of Pickering et al. 2009 to the domain of conversational humor. We find that, as was the case in humorous narratives, conversational humor is not marked by higher pitch or volume, increased speech rate, or significant pauses. Unlike narrative humor, conversational humor is not produced at a lower pitch and slower rate than non-humorous parts of the text. We find that smiling and laughter tend to occur with humor.

  8. The Linguistics of Humor: An Introduction.Salvatore Attardo - 2020 - Oxford University Press.
    This book is the first comprehensive and systematic introduction to the linguistics of humor, exploring not only theoretical linguistic analyses, but also topics from applied linguistics. It will be a valuable resource for students from advanced undergraduate level upwards, particularly those coming to linguistics from related disciplines.
