Continuing with the PROMETEO/2021/079 project, Professor José Joaquín Martínez Egido has managed and coordinated a monograph for the CLAC journal that fully addresses the project’s work, with the participation of almost all members of the research team. The monograph, titled “Pragmatic Labeling of Humorous Discourses on the OBSERVAHUMOR.COM Platform,” accessible through, features research from the PROMETEO 2019/079 members as follows:

Leonor Ruiz Gurillo: “The Pragmatics of Pragmatic Labeling for the OBSERVAHUMOR.COM Platform.”

Working with a pragmatic phenomenon like humor, dependent on the discursive genre in which it appears and the conversational contract established between the speaker-writer and the listener-reader (Ruiz Gurillo, 2016), is a complex task. This article presents the need for pragmatic labeling to be applied to a humor corpus, specifically the OBSERVAHUMOR.COM platform. The review of different humorous marks and indicators acting in various humor corpora forms the basis for proposing a pragmatic labeling illustrated with the different corpora on the platform: CHILDHUM, VALESCO.HUMOR, ERASMUS.HUMOR, COLUMNAS.HUMOR, FEMMES.UP, and BLOGS.HUMOR.


Belén Alvarado and Anastasia Khaylina Tezikova: “Proposal for Pragmatic Labeling for a Conversational Corpus in Spanish.”

This work aims to offer an analysis and proposal for pragmatic labeling of the VALESCO.HUMOR corpus hosted on The GRIALE group has studied irony and humor in Spanish, creating a taxonomy of marks and indicators to discern ironic and humorous statements in collected corpora. This proposal provides all the necessary information for interpreting humorous sequences in the VALESCO.HUMOR corpus.


Juan Luis Jiménez Ruiz: “The Fields of Scatological Lexicon in Children’s Black Humor.”

This research aims to verify the inferential linguistic processes behind black or distasteful humor in children. Focusing on linguistic manifestations using scatological lexicon, this study analyzes expressions of black or distasteful humor employed by children aged 8 to 12.


Larissa Timofeeva Timofeev and José Antonio Ortega Gilabert: “Pragmatic Labeling Keys in the CHILDHUM Corpus.”

Within the GRIALE group’s research, recent work involves analyzing verbal humor in children. The CHILDHUM corpus, under construction, includes pragmatic labeling of samples for three age groups, applying humor marks and indicators as linguistic supports for comedic creation.


Chelo Vargas Sierra: “Emotional Analysis of the COLUMNAS.HUMOR Corpus: A Mixed Approach.”

This study analyzes the COLUMNAS.HUMOR corpus, observing predominant polarity and emotions. Employing a corpus-based methodology with quantitative and qualitative techniques, the study aims to interpret emotional data in each corpus of study.


José Joaquín Martínez Egido: “Pragmatic Labeling of a Corpus of Economic and Financial Blogs in Spanish.”

The economic and financial blog genre allows for economic discourse in Spanish, often incorporating verbal humor as a discursive strategy. This work prepares and labels texts from economic and financial blogs according to GRIALE’s guidelines, making them available on the OBSERVAHUMOR.COM platform. The achieved result includes the creation of a labeled corpus from two blogs, selecting 100 humorous sequences and providing a typology of these sequences.
