    reference problem?

    Hi all,

    In the following sentence can Kihara's theory too be interpreted as a theory of verbal irony? Does the sentence suggest something like that?

    In reaction to Kihara's theory, the second part of the paper proposes a semantic approach to the representation of verbal irony.

    Thanks a lot!

    Nope. It doesn't suggest anything except that it's a theory.
