Review

This is an extremely objective and wide-ranging first exposition of a fascinating area of study. Forum for Modern Language Studies A welcome addition to the series 'Edinburgh Textbooks in Applied Linguistics'! One of the strengths of the book is its wide use of examples from literary texts to test the usefulness of the pragmatic theories discussed. While this is territory covered in other textbooks, Black provides a perceptive and well illustrated account! Pragmatic Stylistics will be of interest to those studying or teaching stylistics and literature within Applied Linguistics and related courses. Its generous range of topics and literary examples would also, I think, appeal to students of English literature with an interest in linguistic theory. -- Diane Davies, University of Leicester Baal News This is an extremely objective and wide-ranging first exposition of a fascinating area of study.
