BeschreibungUsing a wide range of twentieth-century literary prose, Laura Wright and Jonathan Hope provide an interactive introduction to the techniques of stylistic analysis. Divided up into five sections--the noun phrase, the verb phrase, the clause, text structure and vocabulary--the book also provides an introduction to the basics of descriptive grammar for beginning students. Presuming no prior linguistic knowledge, "Stylistics" provides a comprehensive glossary of terms. Designed to be used in a variety of classrooms, it introduces students to an enormous range of 20th century literature. This book does not seek to present an account of stylistics as a discipline; rather, it provides over forty opportunities for hands-on stylistic analysis. For each linguistic feature under discussion, the reader is offered a definition, a text for analysis, exercises and tasks, in addition to a suggested solution.
