Patterns in Language: An Introduction to Language and Literary Style (Interface Series)

 
35

Patterns in Language addresses the real needs of students who may not have an extensive background either in traditional literature or in linguistic theory. This student-friendly textbook uses the principles of linguistic analysis to investigate the aesthetic use of language in literary (and non-literary) texts. Written in straightforward, accessible language with imaginative examples and a humorous tone, it shows how linguistic knowledge can enhance and enrich the analysis of texts. The authors borrow from traditional stylistics, but focus primarily on the recurring linguistic patterns which are used by writers of poetry, fiction and drama. The authors draw on a wide variety of textual sources to illustrate their observations, making reference to both canonical literature and modern literary texts, as well as to popular fiction, television and the language of advertising. Exercises designed to develop the students' understanding of the material are provided at every stage, and sample answers are also included.
