Title :A Relevance-Theoretic Approach to the Ironies in The Book of Tea
Authors :岡裏 佳幸
Issue Date :28-Feb-2006
Abstract :Traditional pragmatic approach regards irony as a figure of speech which communicates the opposite meaning of what was literally said, while Wilson & Sperber (1992) insists that verbal irony is an example of echoic interpretive use and that the author or speaker dissociates himself/herself from the thought which the irony communicates. According to Wilson & Sperber's Relevance-Theoretic approach, irony echoes the cultural standards or the denial attitude of the author, and produces its implicature, so that it can obtain optimal relevance. Adopting the theory of echoic interpretive use, we will investigate the process in which the ironies in The Book of Tea, satisfying the First (or Cognitive) Principle and the Second (or Communicative) Principle, can gain optimal relevance, and will make it clear that the ironies in The Book of Tea echo the negative thoughts of the author OKAKURA Kakuzo or the cultural standards in the Meiji Era.
