The research shows what features and functions distinguish everyday joke from other types of text. It focuses on the genre of joke and its repetitive, dynamic elements in a descriptive context. The leading research question in this paper is: how can general, typical characteristics be used to analyze the joke text in three languages - German, English and Russian? The research is based on the extensive body of texts from the everyday joke, which is a humorous dialogue discourse. The authors of this study have tried to find new approaches to the analysis of everyday jokes. The research aim is not only to find the right way to define and analyze the joke, but also to introduce various approaches, methods and factors that may be relevant to the linguistic description of this type of text, and to compare the texts of the joke in the three above-mentioned languages. In accordance with the specific tasks, the work uses a comprehensive research methodology based on the application of various research methods: comparative analysis of texts in different languages, definition analysis, contextual analysis of lexical unit values, interpretive semantic analysis of contexts in which linguistically specific words and phrases are used, classification and systematizing techniques. More than 450 jokes in the form of dialogues were selected for the analysis method of continuous sampling of language material.
