Wayles Browne" 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.
