List of Puns About Puns

This list is the current, full collection of homographic and homophonic wordplay on the topic of puns. Each item either describes a direct pun (e.g. fun → pun) or a rule which can describe a set of possible puns. In the latter case, the asterisk (*) character is used to denote one or more letters.

  •  Pun*: Words that begin with “pun” are your entry-level puns about puns: punishment, punisher, punishingly, punt, punter, punchline, punch, punching, punctuate, punditry, pungent, punk, punctuality, punnet, punter,

  • Pen → Pun: As in “Can I please borrow your blue pun?”
  • un* → pun*: Some very easy/cheap/corny puns can be made by replacing the prefix “un” with “pun”. There are thousands of words in English that begin with “un” because we use “un” as a prefix to negate a word (e.g. unimportant, uninformed, unsuccessfully, unwrap). So we’ll list a few examples here, and you can check out this list of words starting with “un” to help you create your own. Okay, on to the examples: punstoppable, punderstanding, punemployment, punfortunately, pundertaking, pundoubtably, pundergraduate, puncomfortable, punprecedented, punfamiliar, punlimited, pundertaking, punpredictable, punderstatement, punequivocal, punconstitutional, punquestionably.

  • Fun* → Pun*: Som words starting with “fun” tend to work all right as corny puns (the most famous being “punny”): punny (funny), pundamentally (fundamentally), pundamentalist (fundamentalist), punctionality (functionality), pundraising (fundraising).
  • Or the gravy → Orthography: As in “Would you like tomato sauce orthography?”
  • Or the graphic → Orthographic: As in “This graphic, orthographic by the other artist?” Orthography is the study of spelling and how letters combine to represent sounds and form words.
  • Phoney/Phony → Homophony: As in “Your puns aren’t genuine, they’re homophony.”
