Irony Processing in L2 English Speakers
Pimrat Fongchamnan (Thammasat Univ.) TL2018-33
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This article reports the findings of an eye-tracking study which investigated the on-line irony processing in Thai speakers of English. Reading time courses of the participants were recorded while they read quantified antecedent sentences, whether intended ironically or literally, and subsequent texts contained pronominal reference. The results indicated significantly longer reading times when the participants processed reference set sentences that follows an antecedent statement contained a positive quantifier in an ironic circumstance, and vice versa if the antecedent is negative. That means only ironic interpretation remains active during irony processing.
