Title:Developing the Incongruity-Resolution Theory
Authors: Graeme Ritchie
Date:Apr 1999
Publication Title:Proceedings of the AISB 99 Symposium on Creative Language
Publication Type:Conference Paper
Page Nos:78-85
The idea of incongruity-resolution has frequently been suggested as an account of many types of joke. However, there is no precise statement either of this ``theory'' nor of its main concepts (incongruity and resolution), and different authors may disagree on details. We concentrate on two particular variants and attempt to clarify what would be needed to make these into computational models.
