Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Key Terms in Stylistics
Written By: Nina Nørgaard
Beatrix Busse
Rocío Montoro
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/search/default.aspx?Text=Key%20Terms%20in%20Stylistics
Series Title: Key Terms
Description:

Stylistics is the study of the ways in which meaning is created and shaped
through language in literature and in other types of text. Key Terms in
Stylistics provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of the field,
along with sections that explain relevant terms, concepts and key thinkers
listed from A to Z.

The book comprises entries on different stylistic approaches to text,
including feminist, cognitive, corpus and multimodal stylistics. There is
coverage of key thinkers and their work as well as of central terms and
concepts. It ends with a comprehensive bibliography of key texts.
The book is written in an accessible manner, explaining difficult concepts
in a straightforward way. It will appeal to both beginner and upper-level
students working in the interface between language, linguistics and literature.

"Key Terms in Stylistics is a substantial, timely and much-needed
contribution to the rapidly developing field of Stylistics. Charting the
development of Stylistics from its inception to the present day, and
covering the major themes, terms and concepts, this book is the key
reference guide to modern Stylistics. One of the major accomplishments of
the book is the way its authors manage to reign in the many diverse strands
in contemporary stylistic analysis, from Feminist Stylistics to Cognitive
Poetics, from Critical Stylistics to the Empirical Study of Literature,
thereby creating a comprehensive and coherent overview of the present-day
field. With full entries on the key terms and the major work in the area,
this book is essential reading for anyone who wishes (or needs) to acquaint
themselves with the character and practice of modern Stylistics."
