Its structural taxonomy and clear analysis of linguistic joke mechanisms and their semantic and textlinguistic formation combines Greimas' approach to structural semantics with modern textlinguistic theories, empirical research and de-tailed aspects of lexicological semantics. In combination with a very clear and detailed explanation of the concepts involved plus a vast corpus of jokes this book presents a innovative and concise look at jokes both for linguists and those who are interested in humorous aspects of language.
