THE ROLE OF FRAME ANALYSIS IN INTERPRETING IRONY
Elena A. Bryukhanova.

Annotation

The article deals with the interpretation of irony by means of the frame analysis. According to this method, the ironical contradiction is a result of interaction of two frames. The first frame refers to a real fact, the second one to a fictitious fact. The interaction results in the paradox of understanding: one and the same utterance contains both truth and lie. The research is based on the short stories by W.S. Maugham.
