Critical Stylistics : The Power of English, Paperback / softback Book

Critical Stylistics : The Power of English Paperback / softback

Part of the Perspectives on the English Language series

Description

This original and engaging textbook is concerned with stylistic choices, and the textual analysis which can illuminate the choices that a text producer has made.

It combines the strengths of two approaches - critical discourse analysis and stylistics - to uncover the deep-seated ideologies of everyday texts.

In so doing, it introduces a comprehensive set of tools which will help readers to explain and analyse the power of written texts.

Each chapter focuses on a particular linguistic feature - such as naming and describing, prioritizing, negating, and hypothesizing - gives an overview of its argument and then explains the technical aspects of the feature along with a wealth of examples. This book will be ideal reading for students on a wide range of courses, including stylistics, discourse analysis, critical discourse analysis, English functional grammar and advanced composition.
