The irony detection task proposed for EVALITA 2018 consists in automatically classifying tweets according to the presence of irony (sub-task A) and sarcasm (sub-task B).
Given the array of situations and topics where ironic or sarcastic devices can be used, the corpus has been created by resorting to multiple annotated sources, such as TWITTIRÒ and the Italian Hate Speech Corpus.
