Dislexicon of slapstick humor, funny cinematography, and very special effects

Hilde D'haeyere UGent (2011)
abstract
The Dislexicon of Slapstick Humor, Funny Cinematography, and Very Special Effects is a richly illustrated glossary containing 138 witty words used in Mack Sennett's comedy studios between 1912 and 1933. It comprises clever concepts connected to slapstick comedy, gag strategies, funny pratfalls, dangerous stuntwork, and secrets of the filmmaking trade. In a mishmash of slapstick facts and fictions, the Dislexicon fully accepts small talk, tall tales, filmspeak, jokes, and gossip as historical sources. Hopping from "gag" to "laugh" to "trick," the dictionary presents a slapstick universe in which everything makes perfect sense - as only a fictional construction can.
