A DICTIONARY OF STYLISTICS 2nd Edition
Katie Wales, University of Leeds

Over the past ten years there have been striking advances in
stylistics. These have given rise to new terms and to revised
thinking of concepts and re-definitions of terms. A Dictionary of
Stylistics, 2nd Edition contains over 600 alphabeticlly listed
entries: fully revised since the first edition it contains many new
entries.

Drawing material from stylistics and a range of related disciplines
such as sociolinguistics, cognitive linguistics and traditional
rhetoric, the revised Dictionary of Stylistics provides a valuable
reference work for students and teachers of stylistics, as well as
critical discourse analysis and literary criticism. The new edition
explains terminology clearly and concisely, and unravels many
ambiguities. At the same time it provides a general picture of the
nature, insights and methodologies of stylistics.

With numerous quotations; explanations for many basic terms from grammar and
rhetoric; and a comprehensive bibliography, this is a unique reference work
and handbook for stylistic and textual analysis. Students and teachers at
secondary and tertiary levels of English language and literature or English
as a foreign or second language, and of linguistics, will find it an
invaluable source of information.

Reviews of the first edition:

'...a work of high seriousness...manna from rhetorical heaven for students
 and researchers with a lot of hard graft ahead of them... '(English Today)

'...an impressive single-author reference work... '(English)

'...Not only is this volume indispensible for anyone, students or academics,
 working in any field related to stylistics, it is, like all the best
 dictionaries, a very good read...' (Le Lingue del Mondo)
