This book offers a global exploration of current theory and practice in theteaching of stylistics and the implementation of stylistic techniques inteaching other subjects. Pedagogical stylistics is a field that looks atemploying stylistic analysis in teaching, with the aim of enabling students tobetter understand literature, language and also improving their languageacquisition. It is also concerned with the best practice in teaching stylistics.

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, empiricalstudies on specific developments, providing in-depth examinations of boththeoretical and practical teaching methods. This interdisciplinary approachcovers linguistics and literature from the perspective of current pedagogicalmethodology, moving from general tertiary education to more specific EFLand ESL teaching. The role of stylistics in language acquisition is currentlyunderexplored. This contemporary collection provides academics andpractitioners with the most up to date trends in pedagogical stylistics anddelivers analyses of a diverse range of teaching methods.

"Pedagogical Stylistics will be a stimulating read for anyone who teachesStylistics and for teachers of English Language and Literature more generally,either in mother-tongue or second/foreign-language teaching situations. It isfull of interesting discussions of texts, teaching approaches which can beused in class, and empirical studies which relate student reading processesand outcomes to pedagogical strategies." Professor Mick Short, Departmentof Linguistics and English Language, Lancaster University, UK
