About Pragmatic Stylistics

This website is a virtual home for researchers working on pragmatic stylistics.

Pragmatic stylistics is a branch of stylistics which applies ideas from linguistic pragmatics to the analysis of texts and their interpretations. Stylistics is not only about literary texts and pragmatic stylistics aims to explain the effects of all kinds of texts.

The site was created in May 2008. We'll be adding more content as the site and our network develops, particularly after some of us get together at the workshop at Middlesex on the 16th of July 2008.

In the meantime, do get in touch if you have any thoughts or suggestions.
