Linguistic Theories of Humor (Humor Research, No. 1)

Metaphonology of English paronomasic puns. Chapters 7 and 8 explore the possibility of linguistic research of texts other than jokes. Books by Salvatore Attardo. I recommend the book without reservation to any- one interested in humor research. Linguistic Theories of Humor In his view, the importance of conversation analysis for linguistics consists precisely in its ability to test this claim. Apart from that, the arrangement of material roughly resembles that of a textbook on linguistics deliberately sowhich usually starts from phonology and morphology and only then passes to semantics and pragmatics.

Theories of humor

Relief theory[ edit ] Relief theory maintains that laughter is a homeostatic mechanism by which psychological tension is reduced. It is believed that this is the reason we laugh whilst being tickled, due to a buildup of tension as the tickler "strikes". The latter point of view was supported also by Sigmund Freud. This incongruity results in a humorous effect at the moment of its realization. The incongruity theory states that humor is perceived at the moment of realization of incongruity between a concept involved in a certain situation and the real objects thought to be in some relation to the concept. Hegel shared almost exactly the same view, but saw the concept as an "appearance" and believed that laughter then totally negates that appearance. The first formulation of the incongruity theory is attributed to the Scottish poet Beattie.
