O knihe

This book has been written on the assumption that aview of life based on the humorous acceptance of aplurality of meanings is more comprehensive andrewarding than one which takes for granted theexistence of one real world, which separates humourfrom the realm of the serious. This view canconstitute the source of an interest in theexamination of humour in a social settingtraditionally associated with solemnity, i.e. theclassroom. The present study is about the role ofhumour in language education, focusing principally onthe examination of humorous interaction. The studyuses spoken data in a naturalistic setting and drawson traditions of classroom discourse analysis,conversation analysis and (micro)ethnography. Foreignlanguage classroom-specific humour is described, aform of humour characteristic of foreign languageclassrooms, which facilitates learning bytransmitting knowledge in the form of humorous talkaround the text. The conclusions should be especiallyuseful to textbook writers, teachers and teachereducators who may be interested in using humour intheir language classes.
