Playing with Words – Humour in the English Language / Barry J. Blake

Language is mostly used for serious business like telling your book-maker that you really meant to back No. 3 in the fifth, not No. 5 in the third, or asking Sister Immaculata if she wants to see Lust in the Dust. But language is also a source of amusement. We can use it to be funny, to be witty. We can laugh at ourselves and others making a slip of the tongue or coming out with the wrong word. We can write amusing verses.
