This volume is dedicated to the analysis of wordplay in a variety of texts and contexts. It explores the evolution of wordplay and its appreciation over time, as well as the intermediate stages between wordplay and related phenomena. Together with DWP 6, DWP 7 gathers selected papers from the interdisciplinary symposium The Dynamics of Wordplay / La dynamique du jeu de mots (Trier, 2016).
