This book introduces readers to linguistic stylistic analysis and combines both literary and linguistic analysis to explore suspense in crime fiction. Employing critical linguistics, discourse analysis and functional grammar, it demonstrates that suspense in plot-based stories is created through non-linear, causative presentation of the narrative. The author investigates how plot sequence is manipulated to ensure the reader cannot resolve the order of events until the end of the tale. From two-dimensional circumstantial detection in mystery stories to three-dimensional re-evaluation of offender orientation, she uses a linguistic-based stylistic framework to analyse offender motive. She also employs a 'discourse-based' frame analysis to examine the plot structure of crime stories for micro context and set-up scenarios, demonstrating that it is the unravelling of these devices that creates the suspense in murder mysteries and thrillers alike. Finally, she shows how grammaticization of the offending-self reveals an embedded diegetic space in the offender engagement discourse, provoking an intellectual and affective response and reshaping our overall outlook of the crime in the story. This book will appeal to researchers and students from literary and non-literary backgrounds looking for theoretical and practical advice on the linguistic stylistic approach to reading texts.

Sprachlicher Wettstreit zwischen kontroversen Positionen und unterschiedlichen Geltungsansprüchen prägt Diskurse zu umstrittenen Themen und Wissensbeständen; Wissen wird dabei sprachlich ausgehandelt. Diese Diskursstudie untersucht sprachvergleichend zwischen dem Deutschen und Englischen mittels einer systematischen Kombination aus qualitativen und quantitativen Verfahren, welche sprachlichen und visuellen Formen Agonalität induzieren und Konflikte anzeigen. Damit steht eine neu entwickelte Diskursmethodologie für weitere diskurs- und sprachvergleichende Arbeiten zur Verfügung. Die empirische Analyse vergleicht exemplarisch Medientextkorpora um das Energiegewinnungsverfahren Fracking und den Hurrikan Sandy, der 2012 vor allem die USA traf, im Hinblick auf sprachlichen Wettstreit. Der entwickelte methodische Ansatz eignet sich ebenfalls für eine Analyse multimodaler Formen und fiktionaler Texte, was in zwei Exkursen gezeigt wird. Das Buch richtet sich in erster Linie an Sprachwissenschaftlerinnen und Sprachwissenschaftler, die sich für vergleichende Herangehensweisen und Formen sprachlichen Wettstreits in Diskursen interessieren.

This book offers a global exploration of current theory and practice in the teaching of stylistics and the implementation of stylistic techniques in teaching other subjects. Pedagogical stylistics is a field that looks at employing stylistic analysis in teaching, with the aim of enabling students to better understand literature, language and also improving their language acquisition. It is also concerned with the best practice in teaching stylistics. The book discusses a broad range of interrelated topics including hypertext, English as a Foreign Language, English as a Second Language, poetry, creative writing, and metaphor. Leading experts offer focused, empirical studies on specific developments, providing in-depth examinations of both theoretical and practical teaching methods. This interdisciplinary approach covers linguistics and literature from the perspective of current pedagogical methodology, moving from general tertiary education to more specific EFL and ESL teaching. The role of stylistics in language acquisition is currently underexplored. This contemporary collection provides academics and practitioners with the most up to date trends in pedagogical stylistics and delivers analyses of a diverse range of teaching methods.

Moses, Big City, Fünf-nach-zwölf und die anderen setzen große Hoffnungen in ihr neues Leben im »Zentrum der Welt«, so nennen sie das London der Nachkriegszeit. Sie sind aus der Karibik hierhergekommen, jetzt staunen sie über die Dampfwolken vor ihren Mündern. Und wenn der Wochenlohn wieder nicht reicht, jagen sie eben die Tauben auf dem Dach. Kapitulation? Niemals! Stattdessen beginnen die Überlebenskünstler, sich neu zu erfinden – und ihre neue Heimat gleich mit. Samuel Selvons Ton zwischen kreolischem Straßenslang und balladesker Suada setzt sich sofort ins Ohr. Bedingungslos aufrichtig erzählt Selvon von den ersten Einwanderern Englands, die das Land für immer verändert haben – sein Denken, seine Sprache, sein Selbstverständnis. Die literarische Entdeckung!
