Stylistics is a systematic and objective study of texts which adapts the methods and principles of linguistics to the analysis of literature. Stylistics typically does not produce an interpretation of the text, as the New Criticism does; rather, like formalism and structuralism, stylistic criticism is centrally concerned with the modes of signification that texts employ. In stylistics, this entails the taxonomic study of the significant linguistic features by which the text operates; stylistic analysis of a particular work will examine features such as diction, imagery, sound, syntax, rhythm, metaphors, and other figures, identifying and classifying them in a systematic fashion derived from the theories and concepts of modern linguistics. A broader application of stylistics that is quite common in literary studies is the examination of a writer's entire oeuvre or a significant portion of it in order to identify the particular linguistic features and literary devices which constitute his or her distinctive style; this approach may also be used to explain how a writer's style is related to his or her sensibility, world view, or consciousness. Stylistic analysis has also been applied more broadly to groups of writers or bodies of literature which are shown to have sets of linguistic features in common and thus can be said to share a generic style. In this way, stylistics may identify the style of, say, a particular national literature, or that of literary texts written in a particular period of time, or of authors united by a specific sense of the purpose of their writing in relation to their readers John Holloway's The Victorian Sage: Studies in Argument is a good example of the latter. Under the impact of deconstruction and other Continental theories, and in face of the growing need to understand literature in its cultural contexts, stylistics has developed in the last two decades in ways that mirror the development of literary criticism as a whole.
Stylistics is the study of textual meaning. Historically, it arose from the lateth- and earlyth-century Russian formalist approach to literary meaning, which endeavored to identify the textual triggers of certain literary effects from their structures. As a result, for much of its history, stylistics has been concerned with the style, and consequent meaning, of literary works. However, the burgeoning of modern linguistics in the early part of the 20th century and the simultaneous rise of mass media newspapers, radio, and television in the first instance led stylisticians toward two new concerns. First, they wanted to establish whether there was anything unique about the language of literature that differentiated it absolutely from other language use. For this project, new insights from descriptive linguistics were crucial as an objective and rigorous way of describing—and comparing—texts in terms of their style. The eventual consensus that developed from such work was that there is no absolute division, in linguistic usage, between literary and nonliterary texts, though genres of all kinds including nonliterary genres may have stylistic preferences that help to identify them.

The fact that they choose to dedicate a whole chapter to the topic reveals the importance that they attribute to this notion. The chapter demonstrates that a critical analysis of a mind style requires both a detailed linguistic study at the microtextual level, while engaging with wider issues, with studying how the fictional world is experienced. Yet in spite of its rich potential for textual analysis, the term mind-style has not enjoyed the same success as point of view or focalization. Even the second edition of Style in Fiction offers a relatively limited number of references for further reading. The aim of this article then is to seek to understand why this should be. Is the term mind style deviant from the norm of narratological terms?
If a specimen of literary art is seen as a fine tapestry of words made by the skilled seamstress—the poet, then the lexis and structure of a language are the raw materials—the fabric and the thread—by weaving which into specific patterns the finished product is achieved. Mostly, the students of literary studies cannot appreciate the beauty of the literary classics on their own. Consequently, they simply mimic the ideas, and sometimes even the words, of famous professional critics when asked to give their own critical judgment on the aesthetic merit or the thematic quality of a literary work in the shape of a home assignment, classroom presentation or an annual assessment test. Now, the researcher has got the inspiration for carrying out this study from an idea expounded in Widdowson that this mimicry can be replaced by genuine individual opinion if the students, or even those people who have non-academic concerns with literature, are brought to a standpoint from where they can have a closer view of the raw materials, the language resources, which are involved in the making of a literary product. And, if the product in its finished form cannot elicit a desired response from them then making them sensitive to the process of its making can be quite effective in this regard. Through the present study, an attempt has been made to show an easy access to the outlandish world of verse by means of the linguistic route which is laid with the familiar flagstones of grammar and vocabulary.

Discourse analysis DA , or discourse studies , is an approach to the analysis of written, vocal, or sign language use, or any significant semiotic event. The objects of discourse analysis discourse , writing, conversation, communicative event are variously defined in terms of coherent sequences of sentences , propositions , speech , or turns-at-talk. Contrary to much of traditional linguistics, discourse analysts not only study language use 'beyond the sentence boundary' but also prefer to analyze 'naturally occurring' language use, not invented examples. Discourse analysis has been taken up in a variety of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences , including linguistics , education, sociology , anthropology , social work , cognitive psychology , social psychology , area studies , cultural studies , international relations , human geography , environmental science , communication studies , biblical studies , public relations and translation studies , each of which is subject to its own assumptions, dimensions of analysis, and methodologies. The ancient Greeks among others had much to say on discourse; however, there is ongoing discussion about whether Austria-born Leo Spitzer 's Stilstudien Style Studies of the earliest example of discourse analysis DA.

Stylistics is a branch of applied linguistics concerned with the study of style in texts, especially, but not exclusively, in literary works.
Будь у них штат побольше, прослушивали. Сьюзан оставила это замечание без ответа. - У правительств должно быть право собирать информацию, в которой может содержаться угроза общественной безопасности. - Господи Иисусе! - шумно вздохнул Хейл. - Похоже, Стратмор здорово промыл тебе мозги.
А как же любовь. Он слишком долго обделял. И ради. Чтобы увидеть, как какой-то молодой профессор украл его мечту. Стратмор холил и лелеял Сьюзан, оберегал.
- Ты считаешь, что мы готовы взять на себя такую ответственность. Ты считаешь, что кто-нибудь готов. Это же крайне недальновидно.
Человек благоговейно потянулся к закрепленной на брючном ремне батарее: эта машинка, подарок одного из клиентов, подарила ему новую жизнь. Теперь он мог принимать заказы в любой точке мира. Сообщения поступали мгновенно, и их нельзя было отследить.
Сьюзан тяжело вздохнула. Несмотря на все попытки забыть утренний разговор с Дэвидом, он никак не выходил у нее из головы. Она понимала, что говорила с ним слишком сурово, и молила Бога, чтобы в Испании у него все прошло хорошо.
У нас осталось всего восемь минут. Мы ищем число, а не произвольный набор букв. - Четыре умножить на шестнадцать, - спокойно сказал Дэвид. - Вспомни арифметику, Сьюзан.
Стратмор кивнул: - Думал. Но решил этого не делать. Сьюзан так и подумала.
- Она безуспешно старалась говорить спокойно. Джабба нахмурился. - Мы это уже обсудили. Забыла.
