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.

Series Title: Advances in Stylistics
Description:

Editor's Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced book.

Pedagogical Stylistics offers a global exploration of current theory and practice in the teaching of stylistics and the implementation of stylistic techniques in teaching other subjects. The book discusses a broad range of interrelated topics including hypertext, English as a foreign language, English as a second language, poetry, creative writing, and metaphor. Leading experts offer focused, empirical studies on specific developments, providing in-depth examinations of both theoretical and practical teaching methods. This interdisciplinary approach covers linguistics and literature from the perspective of current pedagogical methodology, moving from general tertiary education to more specific EFL and ESL teaching. The role of stylistics in language acquisition is currently underexplored. This contemporary collection provides academics and practitioners with the most up to date trends in pedagogical stylistics and delivers analyses of a diverse range of teaching methods.

“Pedagogical Stylistics will be a stimulating read for anyone who teaches Stylistics and for teachers of English Language and Literature more generally, either in mother-tongue or second/foreign-language teaching situations. It is full of interesting discussions of texts, teaching approaches which can be used in class, and empirical studies which relate student reading processes and outcomes to pedagogical strategies.” – Professor Mick Short, Department of Linguistics and English Language, Lancaster University, UK,

“Ground-breaking in its scope and theoretical sophistication, clear and inspiring in its pedagogical goals, this volume is indispensable reading for any teacher of stylistics.” – Professor Barbara Dancygier, Department of English, University of British Columbia, Canada,
