EDL.ECML.AT/JOKEBOOK

The great multilingual joke book (or Make me laugh!)

In how many languages can you make someone laugh? A sense of humour and what someone finds amusing are often considered to be influenced by the language/s they speak and their cultural background. In order to test out whether this is really the case, and during a time where there has not been much to laugh about, we are inviting you to send us your best jokes. The jokes can be in your own language/s or a language you are learning - the most important thing is that they are funny! They can of course be related to language/ adaptable to different languages but the primary criteria is that they are amusing!

Submit your favourite joke! If your joke makes it past a very strict jury (comprised of individuals who don’t laugh much!) your joke may be selected to feature in the ‘greatest ever (or perhaps only!) multilingual joke book’ to be published after the EDL.

This is how it works

  1. The jokes can be related to language or just plain funny to anyone – no matter where they come from or which languages they are in! 
  2. No racist, nationalist or dirty jokes will be published.

Good luck and have fun!
