On the Interactivity of Stylistic Analysis

Lihua LIU


Stylistics can be viewed as an area of study which straddles literary criticism and linguistics. Even though different linguistic schools result in different approaches to stylistics, every stylistic approach will incorporate in its paradigm some key factors such as the reader and the author. This thesis is a tentative study of how these factors interact with one another and ultimately form a basis for interactivity in stylistics.
