Dissertation Abstract:

Critical Discourse Stylistics is an approach to text processing which relates 
the functions of linguistic structures to particular worldviews, ideologies in 
the social context of texts. Such an approach requires laying bare what is 
ideologically embedded in linguistic forms and what values are assigned to 
particular choices of language use.

The corpus of data contained within this dissertation comprises 16 short 
stories by Sabahattin Ali, a well-known Turkish writer, written between 
1925-1947. A close reading of these short stories reveal that certain 
realities, shared views, socio-cultural, historical, and political references are 
constructed by linguistic and extra-linguistic structures. In other words, 
each story has its own 'text world' that points to some social and cultural 
practices, which are indicative of an ideology.

Through critical discourse stylistic analyses of the corpus of data, the 
linguistic structures which Sabahattin Ali chose to use in the production of 
the ideological message reflected through the stories, are investigated, 
described, and specified. Consequently, these systematized structures are 
interpreted and explained in the socio-cultural and political context of the 
early Republican period in Turkey.
