Laughables and laughter perception: Preliminary investigations
- We present some preliminary studies aiming at investigating laughables (the entity or event that each laughter is related to) from different perspectives. In particular we explore whether different laughables can be accounted for in terms of Gricean maxim violations, whether naive coders can distinguish different kinds of laughables based on their semantics, whether laughs related to different laughables differ significantly in terms of arousal and valence judgements and whether such valuations from naive coders correlate with their daily experience of laughter production and perception.
