Abstract:

Stylistics is the linguistic study of style in language. It aims to account for how 
texts project meaning, how readers construct meaning and why readers respond 
to texts in the way that they do. This book is an introduction to stylistics that 
locates it firmly within the traditions of linguistics. Organised to reflect the 
historical development of stylistics from its origins in Russian formalism, the 
book covers key principles such as foregrounding theory, as well as more 
recent developments in cognitive stylistics. It includes an examination of both 
literary and non-literary texts, and substantial coverage of methodologies for 
stylistic analysis. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on the practicalities of 
producing stylistic analyses that are objective, replicable and falsifiable. 
Comprehensive in its coverage and assuming no prior knowledge of the topic, 
Stylistics will be essential reading for undergraduate and graduate students new 
to this fascinating area of language study.

Reviews

'A panoramic view of the maturing discipline of stylistics. Richly illustrated 
from literature and media in English, it shows how the same analytic tools 
and techniques can be revealingly applied both to literary and non-literary 
texts. A first-rate textbook and an enjoyable read.'
Geoffrey Leech, Lancaster University

'? wide-ranging and informative, offering excellent coverage, perceptive 
guidance on research methods and innumerable fascinating links between 
both linguistic and literary theory and analytical practice. Stylistics is now a 
mature and rapidly growing discipline and you couldn't wish for a better guide 
to the field.'
Ronald Carter, Nottingham University
