Book review

The nature of laughter has recently attracted the attention of a number of different disciplines. In two recent colloquia, TRIO (Translation Research in Oxford) brought together international authorities from fields as diverse as physiology, psychology, linguistics, translation and literary studies, and sociology, with scant regard for political correctness. This fascinating and often hilarious collection of essays is the result.
