Ludic discourse studies in the Opole school of stylistics
The aim of the article is to present ludic discourse studies in the Opole school of stylistics. First, the author presents the very term “discourse” and its collocations, showing how fashionable it is, in how many different contexts it can be used and why it can be useful also in humour studies. Then she outlines the premises and most important achievements of two collaborating schools: Lublin ethnolinguistic school and Opole stylistics school. This is the background of ludic discourse studies conducted by the latter.
