Most of us know from personal experience how hard it is to be sure whether or
not there is irony in E-mail messages.  This is essentially because it is a
'thin' communication medium, with no body language and limited context. (Lucy
Suchman, "Situated Actions" and stuff).
 
No heavy-weight contribution to either "Masques" or "Historicity", but don't we
have somewhat similar problems of a thin communication medium and limited
context?
