Language, Discourse, Style : Selected Works of John McH. Sinclair (Hardcover)
About this item
For the first time, the works on stylistics by one of the most brilliant linguists of our times are collected in a single volume. This book highlights the evolution of John Sinclair’s theories and insights from studies on language teaching through detailed analyses of text and discourse, into his later works on corpus stylistics. More specifically, Part I focuses on how theory can inform teaching practice. Part II is more directed towards linguistic analyses of specific texts and provides practical bases for stylistics approaches. In Part III Sinclair´s contributions to discourse analysis shed light onto ways of looking and understanding literature. Written in his crisp clear, straightforward style, this book demonstrates Sinclair`s explicit concern for more systematic approaches to the integration of language and literature and shows why his works on stylistics have been both reference and inspiration to students, language and literature teachers and researchers over many decades.
