Comprehending Speaker Intent in Rebuttal Analogy Use: The Role of Irony Mapping, Absurdity Comparison and Argumentative Convention.
Colston, Herbert L.
Language and Speech, v43 n4 p337-54 Oct-Dec 2000
Investigated the role that irony mapping, absurdity comparison, and argumentative convention play in interpreters' derivations of speaker's intentions in using rebuttal analogies. Three rebuttal types were rated on argumentativeness and social attack in verbal conflict and nonverbal conflict scenarios. Results found that analogies with ironic bases were perceived more as social attack and as more argumentative than analogies with absurd bases. (Author/VWL)
