This task is not currently in use. It was developed by Orbelo et al. (2005) as an attitudinal subtest of the Aprosodia Battery. It consists of 20 sentences recorder by both male and female speakers in either a sincere or sarcastic manner. Sentences were semantically neural (e.g. “This looks like a safe boat.”) Subjects were asked to indicate whether the speaker was being sincere or sarcastic. You can read more about the task and results here and here.
