Abstract:

This volume of articles comprises papers from the 25th annual conference of
the Poetics and Linguistics Association (PALA), which was held at the
University of Huddersfield, England, in July 2005. The theme of the
conference was 'Stylistics and Social Cognition', and as usual at a PALA
conference, this theme was interpreted very widely by the participants, as
the reader of this book will no doubt conclude.

At the heart of this volume, there is something of a reaction against the
cognitive developments in stylistics, which might be seen as being in
danger of privileging the individual interpretation of literature over
something more social. The concern is to consider whether there is a more
collective approach that could be taken to the meaning of text, and whether
recent insights from cognitive stylistics could work with this idea of
collectivity to define something we might call 'commonality' of meaning in
texts.

Stylistics and Social Cognition will be of interest to those working
in stylistics and other text-analytic fields such as critical discourse
analysis and those concerned with notions of interpretation, collective
meaning and human communication.
