Concept of the Stylistics
What is stylistics? It is the study of the use and meaning of language in literature, such as literary criticism.
Stylistics has to do with how people communicate and express themselves by writing or speaking. This includes how they choose words, phrase their sentences, create images through metaphor or allusion, set tone through the point of view, and many other things that are often overlooked in traditional grammar teaching.
This can be applied to both written work (literature) and spoken word (speech). The goal of stylistics is not to teach people what each person does when writing or speaking but rather to teach them what others do when writing. It’s the individual’s job to interpret these signals based on his or her own personal experiences. Having knowledge of stylistics is useful for writers who want to convey their message with a purpose.
Stylistics looks at the literary art form as a language, which includes how it can be used, where it can be used, and whether or not it is even appropriate to use in certain situations. Stylistics provides an insight into how to evaluate writing at degrees other than grammatical correctness; namely, poetic voice (the speaker) and poetic function (the function of the words). Stylistics is a term meaning both “style” and “study of the style”.
It is not a style in the sense of fashion, but rather as a means to understand how literature works as a communication. The focus of stylistics is on verbal communication, i.e., literary communication, which includes all prose and poetry, as well as spoken interactions such as lectures, speeches, interviews, and interviews with experts.
It has been defined by David G. Hall as “the social questions raised by two or more textual groups that depart from one another for any number of reasons: ideology; attitudes toward society; class stratification; political differences; force majeure. While stylistic difference exists among a group of writers, it can also exist between groups of the same author”. And “styling is a major means by which members of society communicate with each other. Communication is not just what we say, but also how we say it.
It is no secret that social class has played a large role in determining the literary status quo in many countries. In some countries or regions, fiction written by members of an underprivileged class has been largely ignored or even suppressed. In other societies, however, the willingness to consider less prestigious works as genuinely significant has been limited to an elite group.
