5: Phonology & Phonetics


Search Engine Optimization (SEO), (SERP), (NLP), Segmental and Suprasegmental Phonology

irony, sarcasm, punctuation

Phonology is a subset of linguistics that analyzes sound into fragmented constituents called phonemes; phonology is divided into two segments; segmental features and suprasegmental or prosodic features. Segmental studies the phonemic of sound such as; “pig,” would be segmented into phonemes “p,” “i,” “g,” in which all phonemic inversions are studied in terms of how they’re formed by their consonant and dissonant syllable formations. Suprasegmental or prosodic features examines tonal modulation, cadence, intonation, inflection, stress and other vocal utterance.

The pressure of tension, pause and release in tone plays an integral role in literary devices; such as irony, sarcasm and condescension. There’s different kinds of irony; dramatic, situational, verbal, tragic and socratic irony; if you search query “irony,” all variants are indexed in the search results. A user may Google “irony;” however, there’s a myriad of irony deriving from syntax. Here’s a example of dramatic irony. The play “Romeo and Juliet;” Romeo assumes that Juliet is dead, but the audience knows that she’s in a deep sleep; there’s a discrepancy between what Romeo and the audience interprets, and this constitutes dramatic irony.

Situational irony is the contrast of what’s expected or anticipated; socratic irony is a method of succumbing to idiocy to exploit the folly of your adversaries. Tragic irony is being poor and healthy, winning a million dollars and developing a terminal illness; verbal irony is a literal statement with contrasting interpretation deriving from tone. The rest of ironies are contrasted and expressed under different opposing circumstances; hence we’ll explore the peculiar nature of verbal irony, because it’s contingency is predicated on tone.

Acoustic or prosodic marks of verbal irony and verbal sarcasm rely on a change in nasal resonance to induce the monotonic features, a contrast from the general ascend and descend in syllable intonation during a literal conversation. Search queries are void of tone and rely on punctuations to accentuate the same rhetoric that prosodic features would induce in irony and sarcasm. Here’s an example of verbal irony; a family is about to go outdoor camping, and a thunderstorm sabotages the vacation. The father utters; “well now is a beautiful time to go out!” (verbal irony).

Here’s an example of verbal sarcasm; “a dirty homeless guy walks into a bar; a customer utters to the man, “you smell great!” (verbal sarcasm). Both verbal irony and verbal sarcasm are literal statements with benevolent and disparaging contrast. Verbal irony is objectively innocuous and not contingent on a subjective target; whereas, verbal sarcasm is malevolent, sinister and predicated on the dejection of a subjective target. However, verbal sarcasm can be objective while disparaging the subjective target indirectly.

Example; a homeless guy walks into a bar; the customer utters to the bartender, “this place smells great!” (verbal sarcasm). It’s an objective statement when referring to the odor of the establishment, but it’s an objective expression with an indirect attack towards the target. Verbal irony can also be objective, and here’s an example; you’re doing homework in a coffee-shop, and your textbook falls off the table;” a customer utters; “you dropped your lifeline!” (verbal irony). It’s a friendly gesture that infers education as a lifesaver.

Both verbal irony and verbal sarcasm can be subjective and objective, and what determines the dichotomy between the two devices is the harsh, brute attack, vs the inoffensive, friendly nonliteral meanings, and the context in which the intonations are evoked. Virtual platforms such as social-media and search engines omit sound from rhetorical devices, and introduces punctuation as an augmented or hyperbolic substitute. Hence, the exclamation “!,” amplifies the emotional attributes associated with the literal statement, introducing an emphasis on the syntax. This juxtaposes the incongruity between the statement “smell great,” and the “dirty homeless man’s,” predicament, inducing the irony or sarcasm.

Rhetorical devices and punctuations are inextricable, because period, comma, parentheses, quotation, semicolon, hyphen and dashes can unequivocal or obfuscate syntax in search query or social-media. Primary example; “a woman without her man is nothing;” and “a woman without her, man is nothing.” An explicit statement becomes implicit because of punctuation; whereas, in verbal communication where punctuation is not an implemented factor, the effort is rendered through the pause and release in the prosodic features of speech. Punctuation serves as an online substitute for prosodic features to augment a rhetorical statement, hyperbolically; one that incurs a disparity between the punctuational effect and the literal statement. Search engine optimization (SEO), and Google’s algorithmic method of search query is an obligatory, phonological and punctuational analysis.
