Efforts to create a sarcasm detector

China is doing this-- not just China (more in additional links), but this is terrifying. People there may have to guess how much enthusiasm is too much enthusiasm.

A lot of people would like to be able to detect sarcasm mechanically, it's not just about censorship.

Somewhat interesting, but not very good. Keeps talking about Easterners when they mean China. And I have no idea whether all Westerners-- or all western cultures-- have similar attitudes about humor.

The four styles of humor don't seem to include puns.

A better humor typology.
