Abstract:Far from being restricted to a simple ironic comment, expressing the opposite of the literal meaning or voicing a duplicitous type of communication, irony appears as a complex phenomenon, in which the assumptions, the focal event, the intentionality, and the strategic choices made by the participants become intertwined with the context. The present article approaches irony from a contextual perspective, in an attempt to show how the various contexts affect speaker’s choices and how the presence or the absence of the interlocutor may interfere in interpreting an ironic comment.
Key words:irony, “fencing game” model, ironic comment, contextual constraints, functions
