The anthroponymic world in the text of the Anglophone joke

By Samokhina Victoria and Pasynok Valentina


Being a complex study of the anthroponymic properties of modern British and American jokes this paper substantiates their specific comic functions as well as the means of comic effect creation. The analysis is underpinned with the methodological principle of anthropocentrism within the framework of which correlation between various groups of anthroponyms grounded on the basic cognitive mechanism of incongruity is ascertained
