In this book English heterophonous/paronomasic/puns are
investigated from a metaphonological perspective. I look into the
ways and methods of native speakers' self-conscious metalinguistic
manipulation of their phonological system/s/, as exemplified in
punning. A phonostatistic analysis of nearly 4000 English puns is
attempted in testing a hypothesis that the phonological
representations accessed and generated in punning are significantly
different from those used in 'ordinary' speech encoding.
Comparisons are carried out against phoneme frequency distributions
of running speech and those of spontaneous errors.In speech play,
competence mechanisms are accessed which differ from structural
competence a la Chomsky.
