Title: Pedagogical Stylistics
Subtitle: Current Trends in Language, Literature and ELT
Edited By: Michael Burke
Szilvia Csabi
Lara Week
Judit Zerkowitz
Series Title: Advances in Stylistics

This book offers a global exploration of current theory and practice in the
teaching of stylistics and the implementation of stylistic techniques in
teaching other subjects. Pedagogical stylistics is a field that looks at
employing stylistic analysis in teaching, with the aim of enabling students to
better understand literature, language and also improving their language
acquisition. 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, 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
