Carry out basic stylistic analyses of different text types using a range of stylistic frameworks If you are an English language learner meeting stylistics for the first time, this textbook will familiarize you with the basic terms and key concepts. And if you are taking an undergraduate stylistics course and you need help on analyzing texts, you will find here a step-by-step guide to analyzing different text types using a defined selection of stylistic frameworks. You will be introduced to the analysis of poetry, fiction, drama, humorous writing, advertising, political texts and online journalism and offered guided practice in a range of methodologies, with a particular focus on functional and pragmatic stylistics. The opening chapter introduces you to the key foundational terms and concepts, covering dialect, register, field, tenor, mode, choice, deviation, and foregrounding. The remaining chapters guide you from theory into practice.
