    READER Ï DOC The Pun Also Rises Hardcover The Pun Also RisesPuntiful Punlicious Punderful Puntastic Punetrating All describe this punny book Unfortunately I'm nowhere near as punny as John Pollack Considering his belief that punning is a sign of intelligence I suppose that he would doubt mine However as clever as puns can be not everyone has punability Pollack says Noam Chomsky doesn't pun and whatever you may blame Chomsky for stupidity isn't one of his flawsPollack puns his way through this surprisingly scholarly examination of the sociolinguistic anthropological historical and anatomical facets of punning He has done his homework but he failed to have it corrected Oh this is for the most part accurate and i

Their history and development over the cours

    READER Ï DOC The Pun Also Rises Hardcover The Pun Also RisesI was very disappointed What little history Pollack could scape together was mostly used to set up unimpressive puns The writing was mostly dull and the author seemed much impressed with himself than I was The best part was his account of the national punning competition at the beginning of the book An entire volume ded
