Pragmatics can be defined as a branch of linguistics that studies deiksis, presupposition, discourse analysis and conversational implicature. Implicature can be interpreted as a hidden intention behind the speech. Meanwhile, conversational implicatures are only known by most people who know the context tuturannya alone. Conversational implicatures are trying to analyze a conversation in order to obtain the correct meaning. Humour is the mental ability to discover, express or appreciate something funny or something really unusual.
