We hope that this volume responds to the increasing interest of scholars for national manifestations of humour in Central and Eastern European countries, offering an accurate account of the current humour research in Romania. The volume will be of interest to both scholars and students who can have access to Romanian theoretical contributions to the study of humour and to a variety of applied researches in the fields of discourse analysis, psycho- and sociolinguistics, cultural and literary studies.
