In order to objectively measure humour, one must first define humour, however, in order to define humour, it is necessary to first measure it objectively. This is further complicated by the subjective nature of the issues raised.For this thesis, the four components: social context, cognitive process, emotional response and vocal behavioral expression of laughter are associated with the two aspects health and language. Since the four components themselves have a basis in humour and they respectively have a relationship with each of the two aspects, it seems valid to use this as a method of objective measurement of humour. In this study, questions are discussed as to whether people who consider themselves humorous use more positive words, achieve higher values of healthy humour, and whether people who have high healthy humour values use positive words more often than people with high values of unhealthy humour. Further, the question of whether people with a high Cheerfulness-State laugh more often and whether these people are fundamentally more humorous is examined. In addition, the question of whether self-assessed health accompanies healthy humour is considered. 30 people, of both genders, were recruited for this study. With the help of the I-EAR system (for iPod) auditory data was recorded over a period of 2 days and then linked to the questionnaires HSQ, STCI-T <60> and STCI-S <30>. For the analysis of the words (positive and negative connotation), the LIWC system was used. A comparative connection between single subscales and words was found, but also between self-assessed health and healthy humour. These results were only visible between the individual subscales.
