Abstract [en]

This study investigates humour in PhD vivas/defences. Laughter episodes in 15h of video recordings were analysed according to who and what makes people laugh, at what point laughter occurs, and what the function of these humorous episodes might be. The study shows that humour is frequent and fills an important function in ELF interactions in high-stakes academic situations.
