Title: A Dictionary of Stylistics
Written By: Katie Wales
Description:

‘Should be bedtime reading for every English language and literature lover’
- Professor Elaine Treharne, University of Leicester

'... 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

"A Dictionary of Stylistics", now in its third edition, has been fully revised and
updated to incorporate new concepts and terms across a range of related
disciplines, with over 600 entries clearly explained and illustrated from a
variety of written, spoken and electronic materials.

A Dictionary of Stylistics provides a comprehensive and illuminating picture
of the flourishing discipline of stylistics and its history in the past century,
examining the methodologies and concerns of stylistics, and their practical
applications for the analysis and interpretation of literary and non-literary
texts. With many basic terms from grammar, lexis, metre and discourse
explained, it is also designed to encourage readers in their own analyses and
interpretations.
