抄録: In English, “puns” are usually perceived as a subclass of “jokes”. In Japanese, however, this is not necessarily true. In this paper we investigate whether Japanese native speakers perceive dajare (puns) as jooku (jokes). We first summarize existing research in the field of computational humor, both in English and Japanese, focusing on the usage of these two terms. This shows that in works of Japanese native speakers, puns are not commonly treated as jokes. Next we present some dictionary definitions of dajare and jooku, which show that they may actually be used in a similar manner to English. In order to study this issue, we conducted a survey, in which we asked Japanese participants three questions: whether they like jokes (jooku), whether they like puns (dajare) and whether dajare are jooku. The results showed that there is no common agreement regarding dajare being a genre of jokes. We analyze the outcome of this experiment and discuss them from different points of view.
