Studies in Contrastive Linguistics and Stylistics


Series: Languages and Linguistics
BISAC: LAN009000

The present book is an attempt at providing a number of seminal studies on contrastive linguistics and stylistics. This manuscript can not only be used to fill a gap that may exist between the two disciplines, but also as a manual for teaching both disciplines from the author’s point of view. The studies range from phonology, morphology, and syntax to poetic stylistics in a comparative tone.

The readers are presented with a stimulating corner of vantage that combines both contrastive linguistics and stylistics. The book is suitable for both academics and students of linguistics alike. (Imprint: Novinka)
