Abstract

This study aims to explain the use of phonological aspects in creating word play to arouse humor in Stand-Up Comedy (SUC) in Indonesia. By using sociopragmatic approach, phonological aspects which had potential in producing jokes with the form of word play were analyzed qualitatively. The data in this research were oral data from the SUC which was shown in Kompas TV and Metro TV which were transcribed into written form. Three qualitative data analysis steps were used in this research, such as data reduction, data presentation, and conclusion drawing. The results showed that in the humorous discourse of SUC, the Comics used many phonological aspects such as the use of sound substitution, permutation, insertion, addition of sound, and sound absorption. The phonological aspects were formulated in the form of word plays involving out of language aspects, such as the socio-cultural aspects to create humor in the SUC humorous discourse.
