What is the difference between "laugh" and "Laughter"?
He got laughter or laugh in the face? (Sb laughed at him)
A laugh is specific.
Laughter is more general and collective.
He got a laughter or laugh in the face do not mean that somebody laughed at him.
I would say: the laugh is on him after they have tried to make fun of him and he looks ridiculous now.
She laughed at his expense.
A few of her jokes got a laugh.
Or she got a laugh out of him.
