- This paper tries to apply conceptual integration theory to study and explore irony on the basis of psychological space. It is found in example analysis that, “four-space” model fails to fully reasonably explain cognitive process of irony meaning, because irony effect is not based on similarity of relevant space to a large extent, but space conflict of each other serves as the trigger mechanism. Thus, this paper introduces space conflict, space docking and space transition to explain cognitive thinking process of irony.
