[1913 Webster]

Syn: Ingenuity; humor; satire; sarcasm; irony; burlesque.

Usage: {Wit}, {Humor}. Wit primarily meant mind; and now
denotes the power of seizing on some thought or
occurrence, and, by a sudden turn, presenting it under
aspects wholly new and unexpected -- apparently
natural and admissible, if not perfectly just, and
bearing on the subject, or the parties concerned, with
a laughable keenness and force. "What I want," said a
pompous orator, aiming at his antagonist, "is common
sense." "Exactly!" was the whispered reply. The
pleasure we find in wit arises from the ingenuity of
the turn, the sudden surprise it brings, and the
patness of its application to the case, in the new and
ludicrous relations thus flashed upon the view. Humor
is a quality more congenial to the English mind than
wit. It consists primarily in taking up the
peculiarities of a humorist (or eccentric person) and
drawing them out, as Addison did those of Sir Roger de
Coverley, so that we enjoy a hearty, good-natured
laugh at his unconscious manifestation of whims and
oddities. From this original sense the term has been
widened to embrace other sources of kindly mirth of
the same general character. In a well-known caricature
of English reserve, an Oxford student is represented
as standing on the brink of a river, greatly agitated
at the sight of a drowning man before him, and crying
out, "O that I had been introduced to this gentleman,
that I might save his life!" The "Silent Woman" of Ben
Jonson is one of the most humorous productions, in the
original sense of the term, which we have in our
language.
[1913 Webster]
