Bearing in mind the subtlety of verbal irony and the fact that its interpretation
is a very specific process of inference, the recognition of verbal irony is heavily
reliant on the so-called signals, markers or cues of irony. A thorough literature
overview reveals that there is great versatility of such markers, some preferred
in oral and some in written discourse. In this paper we offer an overview of the
various irony markers mentioned by contemporary researchers. We also raise the
issue that clearer “boundaries” between the irony markers, on the one hand, and
the types of irony and the conditions for irony, on the other hand, should be established.
Key words: verbal irony, irony markers/signals, types of irony markers
