Sinonimi: punning | wordplay
A humorous play on words; SYN. punning, wordplay.
Figure of speech, a play on words, or double meaning that is technically known as paronomasia (Greek “adapted meaning”). Double meaning can be accidental, often resulting from homonymy, or the multiple meaning of words; puns, however, are deliberate, intended as jokes or as clever and compact remarks.
