Yus classification of relevance theory

Reply Tue 16 May, 2017 12:15 pm
I'm finishing my BA paper devoted to misunderstandings on the basis of jokes according Yus' classification of relevance theory. I have to admit that jokes based on wrong interpretation of an explicit stimulus are extremely easy to find and to analyze, that is why this part of my paper is, I think, the best. However, I have numerous problems in finding and analyzing jokes based on wrong interpretation of an implicit stimulus accoding to the relevance theory. Would you be so kind to give me few examples of these jokes because it could help me to finish my paper? Best regards.

Hi again,
maybe I'm gonna present you few examples of such kind of jokes to give you a hint what I mean.

-Alan you remind me of a sea.
-So, you think I'm romantic and wild?
-No, it's because you make me sick.

And the second one:
Boy: Angela, since I met you I can't eat, I can't drink...
Girl: Is it because you love me so much?
Boy: No, it's because I have no money left.
