Abstract: The monograph by Arhipova, who is well-recognised as the author of a range of publications about modern folklore’s forms, is concerned with the facts she designates as the language game, but which do not stay fairly within the traditional category of the calembour (though this word was not used in the work). The absence of a theory that might explain this phenomenon impacts the arrangment of certain facts and the search for its historical roots. It appears to be, calembour, or pun, is a phenomenon of no modern folklore’s view, but it is just one of the most important conditions for the language’s existence. Unfortunately, the author did not interpret these issues in her work.
Keywords: language game, calembour, abridgement, abbreviation, polysemy.
