PALA (Poetics and Linguistics Association)

If you're new to pragmatic stylistics, you might not know about PALA (the Poetics and Linguistics Association). Check out their website and also the website for PALA 2008 this year's conference in Sheffield next week.

Ling 131 - Language and Style

Here's another useful link which you'll all be interested in. It's a free online stylistics course, developed by Mick Short and colleagues at Lancaster. It's really clear and useful with lots of very well designed activities to work on.
