Jocular can fit in the English language as an adjective as well as an adverb. The adjective form of the word means full of humour, mirth and laughter.

For example, consider the use of the word in the sentence: Andrew was popular among his team-mates for his fine demeanour and jocular nature.

The adverb form of the word implies "with fun and humour." The synonyms of the word "jocular" are comic, funny, hilarious, jocose, witty, light-hearted, happy-go-lucky, and playful. A jocular person is not moody and up-tight. He or she has a funny bone and can take things in lighter vein. Such a person is known to crack jokes or display his wit at an opportune moment with regularity. Such a person is appreciated for taking a lighter side of life and sharing it with people.
