Hempelmann, Christian F. Ph. D., Purdue University, August, 2003. Paronomasic Puns: Target Recoverability towards Automatic Generation. Major Professor: Victor Raskin. The aim of this dissertation is to create a theory to model the factors, prominently, but not exclusively the phonological similarity, important in imperfect punning and to outline the implementation of this measure for the evaluation of possible imperfect puns given an input word and a set of possible target words. Imperfect… 
Phonological Pun-derstanding
TLDR
This work introduces a new model for automatic target recovery and provides the first empirical test for this task and draws upon techniques for automatic speech recognition using weighted finite-state transducers, and leverages automatically learned phone edit probabilities that give insight into how people perceive sounds and into what makes a good pun.
Automatic Target Recovery for Hindi-English Code Mixed Puns
TLDR
This paper considers code-mixed puns, which have become increasingly mainstream on social media, in informal conversations and advertisements and proposes a four-step algorithm to recover the pun targets for puns belonging to the intra-sentential category.
Papers on Japanese imperfect puns
This paper outlines the aims, results and future prospects of a general research program which investigates knowledge of similarity through the investigation of Japanese imperfect puns (dajare). I
SemEval-2017 Task 7: Detection and Interpretation of English Puns
TLDR
The first competitive evaluation for the automatic detection, location, and interpretation of puns is described, which describes the motivation for these tasks, the evaluation methods, and the manually annotated data set.
Towards the automatic detection and identification of English puns
Lexical polysemy, a fundamental characteristic of all human languages, has long been regarded as a major challenge to machine translation, human–computer interaction, and other applications of
Heterographic Pun Recognition via Pronunciation and Spelling Understanding Gated Attention Network
TLDR
An end-to-end computational approach - Pronunciation Spelling Understanding Gated Attention (PSUGA) network, which exploits the hierarchical attention model with phoneme embedding for pronunciation and spelling and presents a gated attention mechanism to control the information integration.
Experiments in Producing Playful "Explanations" for Given Names (Anthroponyms) in Hebrew and English
TLDR
A working system, which segments and/or manipulates input names by decomposing them into sequences composed of at least two words and/ or transforming them into other words is presented.
GALLURA and the Challenge of Combining Phono-Semantic Matching with Story-Generation: Zoonomastic Illustration
In the present paper, we illustrate on animal names (zoonyms) the specification and design of the phono-semantic matching (PSM) module which within the architecture of GALLURA, should be upstream in

Morphophonemic exceptions and phonetic distance
A given morphophonemic alternation set often includes individual alternations where the phonetic distance between the alternants is greater in some pairs than in others. We hypothesize that, where

TLDR
This paper assumes familiarity with the Semantic Script Theory of Humor and the General Theory of Verbal Humor as well as a general knowledge of the research on humor in linguistics.
Stochastic phonological grammars and acceptability
TLDR
This paper examines the use of a probabilistic phonological parser for words to model experimentally-obtained judgements of the acceptability of a set of nonsense words and argues that Probabilistic generative grammars are demonstrably a more psychologically realistic model of phonological competence than standard generative phonology or Optimality Theory.

This thesis studies phonological speech errors and a phonotactic dissimilarity constraint, demonstrating they have analogous similarity and frequency effects, and employs a probabilistic model of a gradient linguistic constraint which is based on categorical perception.
