Research on humour has developed enormously in the last few years, but the scope of its analysis has also broadened in a similar fashion. The papers collected in the reviewed volume do cover most of the research issues that any pragmatics of humour should address, even if this collection of articles exhibits a certain degree of heterogeneity. However, there is a unifying link among the chapters in the authors’ willingness to treat humour as necessarily contextualized and also to take into account both underlying humorous intentions and the quality of interpretations.
