Abstract:

Stylistics is the linguistic study of style in language. It aims to account for how
texts project meaning, how readers construct meaning and why readers respond
to texts in the way that they do. This book is an introduction to stylistics that
locates it firmly within the traditions of linguistics. Organised to reflect the
historical development of stylistics from its origins in Russian formalism, the
book covers key principles such as foregrounding theory, as well as more
recent developments in cognitive stylistics. It includes an examination of both
literary and non-literary texts, and substantial coverage of methodologies for
stylistic analysis. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on the practicalities of
producing stylistic analyses that are objective, replicable and falsifiable.
Comprehensive in its coverage and assuming no prior knowledge of the topic,
Stylistics will be essential reading for undergraduate and graduate students new
to this fascinating area of language study.

Reviews

'A panoramic view of the maturing discipline of stylistics. Richly illustrated
from literature and media in English, it shows how the same analytic tools
and techniques can be revealingly applied both to literary and non-literary
texts. A first-rate textbook and an enjoyable read.'
Geoffrey Leech, Lancaster University

'… wide-ranging and informative, offering excellent coverage, perceptive
guidance on research methods and innumerable fascinating links between
both linguistic and literary theory and analytical practice. Stylistics is now a
mature and rapidly growing discipline and you couldn't wish for a better guide
to the field.'
Ronald Carter, Nottingham University
