The article outlines a model for studding irony. It opens questions about typical ironical language formulas, about context of its production and about possible performative nature of the ironical use of language. Defining irony as a specific correlation between expression, ironist’s consciousness which generates it and other communication aspects in which it is produced, the author confirms classical definition of irony as an opposition between expressed and intended. This dissonance is being specified regarding contextual aspect of irony, which is briefly exemplified by generic correlation of ironical discourse to the minimalistic genre of aphorism.
