I. Introduction Stylistics is one of the eminent branches of linguistics. It is a linguistic approach that closes to literary criticism. In addition, stylistics involves both linguistic and literary studies. In the last few years, there has been growing interest in Stylistics as it has been gaining its importance and becoming most frequently used.
This style is characterized by coherent and logical syntactical structure, with an expanded system of connectives and careful paragraphing. Its emotional appeal is achieved by the use of words with the emotive meaning. Publicistic style is also characterized by the brevity of expression, sometimes it becomes a leading
Fashion influences many areas of human creativity, especially the mode of dressing. Whereas dressing is usually assumed to be traditional costume, which somewhat stayed static during history. (Ivanović-Barišić Milina). By this assumption alone you can distinguish that a major difference between fashion and dress is that fashion is always changing, whilst dressing is seen to be stagnant. However, dress can be defined another way.
Stockwell (2006) describes stylistics as "an essentially interdisciplinary field" which "is naturally the central discipline of literary study" (p.742). According to Mode (2015), many linguists and critics have proclaimed that there is no a clear definition of stylistics (p.13). Firstly, Mc Arthur (1992) points out that stylistics is "the branch of linguistics that studies style, especially in works of literature"(p.996) .Secondly, Turner (1973) states that "[s]tylistics is that part of linguistics which concentrates on variation in the use of language, often, but not exclusively, with special attention to the most conscious and complex use of language in literature" and adds that "[s]tylistics is the branch of linguistics, but one concerned especially with treatment of variables in the entire text"(pp. 7-8).Finally, Simpson (2004) illustrates that stylistics is "a method of textual
Contextual criticism is used in text to gain a better understanding, along with more knowledge of the text. In “Oedipus the King” by Sophocles and “The Night Face up” by Julio Cortazar. Criticizing these texts contextual for their content will help the reader have intelligent and knowledgeable interpretation of the stories. Using historical events, life experience and looking at the dominant culture we can find the context of certain passages enhances and creates a more accurate reading experience. This validates that contextual criticism is vital to a accurate and more intelligent interpretation of a text.
1). The position of CL is in the second one. McEnery & Wilson (2001) define Corpus linguistics as “the study of language based on examples of ‘real life’ language use” (p. 1). This method has become popular since the advent of personal computers in the 1990s. Therefore, it is often described as being a relatively new approach that investigates language in use with the aid of computers.
There is much debate about fashion bloggers, high street fashion and street style, but more of that will be explained later. Getting back to the topic, when we define street style, and a unique sense of style, what comes to your mind first? Defining it base on first impressions from those words to me, street style is a type of style or subculture that you can find on the streets, where people dress quite differently according to their beliefs or interest. To give you an example, it will be like the teddy boys, who have a distinct set of style and gestures. On the other hand, a unique sense of style is someone who dresses uniquely who usually makes heads turn
The comparative method involved systematically comparing languages in relation to their sound systems, grammar structure and vocabulary to show historical relatedness (Lyons et. al, 2017). Although Saussure acknowledged that the empirical aims of the comparative linguists have rendered them a legitimate field of study, he later came to the conclusion that work produced by comparative linguists are methodologically confused as they were not able to inquire the meaning behind their comparisons and the significance of connections between languages (Holdcroft, 1991). Therefore, majority of the Course in General Linguistics was a critique against the nineteenth century tradition. Saussure argued against the this view of a language as a natural object that evolves by observing definite laws and described language as a social product (Holdcroft, 1991) — beyond the power of the individual to modify and existing only as a result of social convention.
