Full.Prof. Dr. Zeydan Khalaf Omar; Assist. Prof. Abed Shahooth Khalaf

Anbar University Journal of Languages & Literature, 2009, Volume 1, Issue 1, Pages 763-772
DOI: 10.37654/aujll.2009.63889

This paper is concerned with hyperbolic expressions as used in Iraqi Arabic everyday conversation (henceforth IA). Such expressions usually pass without challenge by listeners, who accept them as creative intensifications for elevative or effective purposes such as humor or irony, and who often make their own supportive contributions to the figure of speech. The paper attempts an analysis of such expressions from a sociolinguistic perspective. It is usually thought that the linguistic context as well as other metalinguistic factors play a crucial role in the structuring and understanding of tropes.

DOI: 10.37654/aujll.2009.63913

This research adresses the pragmatic phenomenon of irony in the light of two post-Gricean theories,Echoic-Mention Theory and Relevant Inappropriateness Theory.According to the first theory,it is essential,for the identification of irony,to find the echoic quality of the utterance and the speaker's attitude of dissociation towards this utterance.The second theory considers irony as an ironical utterance which is both inappropriate and relevant to its context.It is Gricean at the core,but includes some departures from Grice's own model.It is argued,in this research,that echoic use of language is essential to standard cases of verbal irony while relevant inappropriateness is not.
