ABSTRACT

This article aims to look at the linguistic humor expressions that appeared in Korean Mask play(가면극) and Chinese Nuo opera(나희). Since both the Korean mask drama and the Chinese Nuo opera were created under the influence of Uheui(우희), the tradition of satire and humor are considered to be continued. Therefore, humor expression is recognized as a very meaningful and important study of mask drama and Nuo opera. Coarse language in mask plays and Nuo opera are swear words and Youkdam(육담), and frequently used language plays include homophony, assonant and riddle. By analyzing the specific lines, swear words and Youkdam are categorized and compared, and the language homophony, assonant and riddles are examined considering the language characteristics of Korean and Chinese language. This research is meaningful because the linguistic humor expressions can be identified through the analysis of the lines of mask drama and Nuo opera.
