Example text

Before we proceed with the discussion, we need to introduce two concepts from humor research: the jab line, mentioned above, and humor support. 1 The jab line Just like the punch line indicates in humor theory the occurrence of a humorous instance at the end of the text (see Attardo et al. 1994 for evidence), the jab line indicates the occurrence of a humorous instance anywhere else. Jab and punch lines are semantically indistinguishable, but they differ at a narratological level. Whereas punch lines are disruptive of the narrative they close, jab lines are not, and in fact often contribute to the development of the text (Attardo 2001).

In the Hockett test (see below) to segment the sentences of jokes and locate punch lines was adopted in Attardo et al. (1994). The only difference in the present context is the extension of the method to spoken utterances, as opposed to written ones. 5. One of the referees notes that the broad and narrow definition of jab line correspond to syntactic and prosodic criteria defining the domain of the humorous instance. 39 40 Salvatore Attardo, Lucy Pickering, and Amanda Baker may display understanding but not provide support, or withhold reaction entirely (and obviously these do not count as humor support).
