Slugs and Steins: Producing and Understanding Sarcasm

Have you ever had the experience of not knowing whether someone was being sarcastic? You are not alone. In this talk, Prof. Jean E. Fox Tree will present research findings from her lab on how people produce and understand sarcasm in speech and writing, including studies of how sarcasm is expressed in internet arguments, how reliable tone of voice is in identifying sarcasm, how often people experience gaps between intended and interpreted sarcasm (sarchasm), and whether sarcastic people are more likely to see sarcasm in others.
