WHAT IS A PUN?
  • A word play suggesting, with humorous intent, the different meanings of one word or the use of two or more words similar in sound but different in meaning. (From Poetry Glossary)
  • A play on words, sometimes on different senses of the same word and sometimes on the similar sense or sound of different words.
from grammar dictionary pun
From Grammar Dictionary: pun
  • A humorous substitution of words that are alike in sound but different in meaning, as in this passage from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll:
    • “And how many hours a day did you do lessons?” said Alice, in a hurry to change the subject.
    • “Ten hours the first day,” said the Mock Turtle, “nine the next, and so on.”
    • “What a curious plan!” exclaimed Alice.
    • “That's the reason they're called lessons,” the Gryphon remarked: “because they lessen from day to day.”
