Humor in LanguageIn many ways, cognitive linguistics offers great promise to solve genuine problems inhumor research. For example, it has been repeatedly noted that the literalization ofmetaphors can be humorous. There have been several studies on metaphors and humor(see Brône, 2017 for a review of some of them). However, none has answered theseemingly basic question of why some metaphors are humorous and some are not.Obviously, this kind of question can be tackled best from within a cognitive approach. Thestrong emphasis on embodiment and on the psychological reality of the theoreticalmodels should also favor interdisciplinary research straddling psycholinguistics andcognitive approaches (e.g., Coulson & Kutas, 2001).Relevance theory has had to wait until Yus (2016) for a full-fledged treatment of humor,despite some early unconvincing attempts (Curcò, 1995; Jodlowiec, 1991). Becauserelevance theory takes the principle of relevance to be inviolable (unlike Grice’scooperative principle), relevance-theoretic accounts stress that relevance guides theinferential process both before and after the incongruity is found.Corpus linguistics has had a very significant impact on the field of linguistics, unmatchedin humor studies, where corpus-based studies are rare.
