    Is this word "to joke" higher register? Because it appears in the book title אתה מתלוצץ, מר פיינמן ("Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman").

    A bit, yeah. In lower register you may find לצחוק, which basically means to laugh, but can also mean to kid (as in you're kidding me). In equal register to להתלוצץ, there is also להתבדח.
