Subject: Study of jokes
Milan Sipka, a Slavist in Sarajevo (yes, there's scholarly life in Sarajevo,
amid the siege!) writes to me on e-mail that he is working on a book
to be called "Linguistic Means of Creating Jokes." He asks me what
there is in American linguistics on similar topics. I have heard of works
by Victor Raskin, but would appreciate exact citations. If anyone can
suggest bibliography, or provide extracts from articles that I can
send by e-mail, I'd be very grateful.
Please reply on the list or to me directly, ewb2[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]cornell.edu .
