gt, This book sets out to provide a fresh overview of the language of jokes and verbal humour in a globalized and digitalized world br br br br Chiaro shows how while on the one hand the lingua cultural nuts and bolts of jokes have remained unchanged over time on the other the time space compression brought about by new technology has generated new settings and new ways of joking and playing with language Covering a wide range of settings from social networks e mails videogames and RPGs computer based Role Play Games to more traditional fields of film and TV especially sitcoms and game shows and advertising this lively book will be essential reading for any student or researcher working in the area of language and humour, In the mid seventies both gender studies and humor studies emerged as new disciplines with scholars from various fields undertaking research in these areas The first publications that emerged in the field of gender studies came out of disciplines such as philosophy history and literature while early works in the area of humor studies initially concentrated on language linguistics and psychology Since then both fields have flourished but largely independently This book draws together and focuses the work of scholars from diverse disciplines on intersections of gender and humor giving voice to approaches in disciplines such as film television literature linguistics translation studies and popular culture, Over the past decade interest in research on screen translation has increased sharply while at the same time fast moving technological breakthroughs are continually modifying and renewing both products and well established methods of linguistic mediation Thus as more scholars choose to devote their energies to investigating this multi faceted field there is an ever growing need to map out where the discipline stands and where it is going in terms of research br This book sets out to establish the state of the art of this ever expanding field and at the same time to underscore the work of scholars following new paths of investigation both in terms of innovative linguistic mediations being examined and pioneering experimental design br The volume includes descriptions of sophisticated electronic databases and corpora of audiovisual products for the big and small screen and the rationale behind them e g how they are created and programmed for querying technical limitations homogeneity in querying languages Furthermore i Between Text and Image i also includes a number of cutting edge studies in audience perception of audiovisual products i e empirically based viewer centred studies which are still rare yet essential if we wish to gain a thorough understanding of the field br Finally the volume does not fail to ignore examples of original research carried out from both a traditional linguistic viewpoint and from a more cultural perspective
