Irony Detector 1.5
Irony Detector is a handy application for those who have trouble immediately identifying the use of words to express something other than (and especially the opposite of) the literal meaning and/or the significance of the incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result.
This is a background filtering and detection application that works with most browsers, email programs, chat software and newsreaders (though it has been known to regularly fail on AOL and WebTV platforms, so exercise caution here).
It can detect tragic, dramatic, Socratic and phlegmatic irony. You can even set the sensitivity from the most basic level to full awareness (Usenet-compatible).
Coming Soon - Sarcasm Detector (Yeah, that'll sell!)
