    Studies of laughter are spread over multiple scientific disciplines of which many have nothing or nearly nothing in common: from conversational analysis and interactional linguistics to emotional psychology, from phonetics and speech technology to physiology, from evolutionary biology to cultural studies. There is not one and established laughter research community but several interest groups were and still are emerging in parallel. Thus, the many different facets of laughter lead to a big diversity of research foci of which only a selection can be treated in this chapter.
