, 2017, izvirni znanstveni članek
Opis: Introduction: Although there has been considerable discussion regarding the presence of therapeutic aspects of humour in the nurse educational programme and syllabus, little is known about the use of humour in the nurse - patient relationship and the needed topics in the Slovene educational system for nurses. From educational and medical perspectives, humour is anything that evokes laughter and it has been proven that laughter contributes to physical health. A sense of humour in nursing has a conformist, quantitative and productive importance which is manifested through the essential elements of humour: meta-communication sensitivity, personal affection for humour and emotional admissibility. As nurses spend a lot of time with patients, humour adds to the quality of their work as well as to the nurses’ satisfaction with their work with patients. The aim of this paper is to contribute to a better understanding of the significance of humour in nursing both for the employees and for the patients and to discuss humour within the framework of nursing profession in Slovenia. The specific objective of our study is to explore the attitudes of Slovenian nurses towards humour and their actual use of humour during their interaction with patients.
Methods: For the purpose of this study, a quantitative research methodology was adopted. A questionnaire was used to collect data on the topic and a set of statistical analyses (frequency distribution method, the χ2 and Spearman rank correlation test) was performed on the data obtained.
Results: Our study shows that Slovenian nurses are prone to the use of humour in their work and they welcome it as an integral part of their work with patients. We found that humour also enhances their sense of belonging to the nursing profession and serves as a tool for socialization.
Discussion: Humour, employed in nursing can help overcome certain difficulties which nurses face in the workplace as they also try to fulfil some social objectives and get socialized via humour. These psychological-sociological features of humour stand out as cognitive and social benefits of the positive emotions of joy, the use of humour for social communication and their influence on the release of stress and coping, which draws from the ergonomics of humour as social interaction. Therefore, topics of humour in nurse education are required.
Limitations: 279 Slovenian nurses with different levels of education participated in the study.
Conclusions: Humour should be used by nurses since it is important in their professional interaction with patients. It can be used as a bridge between individuals and can serve as a means of individual's integration into groups, cultures and, consequently, into the society as a whole.

HUMOR IN IRONIJA V DELIH MARKA HADDONATjaša Rajzer
, 2016, diplomsko delo
Opis: V The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time nam avtor skozi prvoosebnega pripovedovalca naslika portret petnajstletnika z Aspergerjevim sindromom, obliko avtistične motnje. Medtem, ko Christopher razrešuje uganko misterioznega umora psa v soseščini, bralcem nehote razkrije podrobnosti iz lastnega življenja, razloge za razhod staršev, odnose v šoli, manjše in večje osebne bitke, ki vodijo v manjše ali večje, enkrat zmage, spet drugič poraze. Vseskozi pa doživljamo pripoved drugače, kakor svoje življenje doživlja on, saj zaradi bolezenskega stanja ni sposoben socialne interakcije.
A Spot of Bother prikazuje padec še ne dolgo tega uspešnega človeka na vodilnem položaju, ki pa ob upokojitvi začne razmišljati o smrti, bolezni in najmračnejših straneh življenja. Medtem opazi spremenjeno tkivo na boku, za katero smatra, da je rakasto in usodno zanj, izve za ženino nezvestobo s svojim nekdanjim sodelavcem, sinove težave v istospolni zvezi in hčerino poroko z moškim, ki ga nihče ne mara, a je prijazen do njenega otroka iz prejšnje zveze. Vse to je za Georgea preveč in prične izgubljati razum.
Obe fiktivni zgodbi izpod peresa Marka Haddona, ki obravnavata težki življenjski situaciji posameznikov, sta predstavljeni z obilico humorja in ironije v zanj značilnem slogu.

HATE SPEECH AND INTERNET HUMOURAja Lovrec
, 2014, magistrsko delo
Opis: There are different ways of perceiving and understanding humour. Some people comprehend the content on the internet social sites as humorous, others as hateful. The aim of this master’s thesis is to raise awareness of hate speech on the internet. The survey was designed for the purpose of highlighting the difference between hate speech and humour in the example of internet memes. There were 513 Slovene participants answering the questionnaire on how they understand selected internet memes – as humour or as hate speech. The sample of English native speakers was smaller (57 respondents), yet enough to compare the results based on different independent variables (English language proficiency and gender). It was confirmed that there is a thin line between hate speech and humour. Some memes that were considered humorous for Slovene respondents were understood as offensive for English native speakers. We concluded that the level of English proficiency does not significantly influence considering memes as humorous or hate speech. The independent variable of gender has some influence on the respondens perception of a meme as humorous or hateful. Based on the survey analysis, it is concluded that memes which might be perceived as hate speech could also be understood as humorous due to the general purpose of a meme (memes are meant to be humorous and funny).
