Смешното и сериозното във вица

Дафина Генова


The article focuses on structural and functional aspects of the joke text that serve the primary communicative goal of the joke: to amuse. Incongruity and script opposition are the two abstract notions used to explicate humor in the joke text. When humor is explained from a sociological perspective, incongruity and script opposition are only the means, but not the cause of verbal humor. From such a perspective, the cause of humor is sought in the broader social context of the joke that is not necessarily verbally stated. The ambiguous and paradoxical nature of humor in jokes is also commented on, as well as the fuzzy boundary between the humorous and the serious.
