About the Authors
  • Bringing together twenty-five years of research on the sequential organization of laughter in everyday talk, Phillip Glenn analyzes recordings and transcripts to indicate the finely-detailed coordination of human laughter. He demonstrates that its occurrence, relative to talk and other activities, reveals much about its emergent meaning and effects. The book considers laughter's significant role in how people display, respond to, and revise identities and relationships.

    "The book is a typical Cambridge high quality book...a very significant book within its field. As a contribution to the interdisciplinary field of humor research, it presents a wealth of interesting data and several interesting ideas that deserve further elaboration." - Humor, Slavatore Attardo, Youngstown State University
