      Explaining the term 'sound gag', as it relates to Tati's comic use of sound, de Valck states: "[i]t points on the one hand to his physical, non-narrative approach of sound in which the incongruity of the juxtaposition in the non-verbal joke is resolved by the acoustic qualities of the sounds that are presented simultaneously with the images..."
      Uses the term fidelity as a synonym for veridicality and suggests that Tati used lack of fidelity/veridicality to comic effect by synchronising unorthodox sounds to orthodox images.
      Discusses the synchronising of unusual sound effects to footsteps in Mon Oncle (1958), for example the use of ping-pong balls and other objects
      Discusses an example of Chion's (1994) acousmêtre (pp.129-131) in Les Vacances de M. Hulot (1953). The railway station loudspeaker has power over the holidaymakers who rush from platform to platform at its command. But because the command is unintelligible, this is a sound gag and an example of humourous acousmêtre.
