Title Humours Techniques in Alfonso Ussia’s Columns on Basque Politics Summary The aim of the present study is to analyse the different resources defining Alfonso Ussia’s humorous style through some of the columns on Basque politics that he has published during his more than 30 years of journalistic career. It is a strictly descriptive study in which we tackle eight of the techniques that the author uses more often in order to deride certain politicians’ nationalistic aspirations and fiercely criticise the terrorist group ETA’s pointlessness and brutality. Through this style Ussia has developed an ethos which is marked by his total rejection of these ideas and his passionate support for the victims of terrorism. Keywords Alfonso Ussía, Opinion column, Humour column, Basque nationalism, terrorism, ethos
