Written language is interpreted by whoever is reading it. Spoken language is interpreted by whoever is listening/observing. Sarcasm can be lost in either form without a “tag” to point it out, be it your expression when you say it or your words when you write them.
“I’m about to go completely off course now because I have realized what is annoying me: “There is no way of conveying sarcasm in written language without it losing its meaning.”
I think we need a new italic-esqe quick font change thingy for easy to convey sarcasm! Lets start a global campaign!”
i think not. although it could be because i’m a very sarcastic person myself that its not hard for me to identify sarcasm.
