Book Information

   

Title: Stylistics
Written By: Lesley Jeffries
Dan McIntyre
Description:

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

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.
