Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 1999. 215pp. looks unused. The concept of register is a wonderful tool for readers of all kinds of texts, especially literary ones and this book explains how register can be used without resorting to the full panoply of linguistic jargon. Readers at all levels have often fought shy of trying to 'do stylistics' with their literary and other texts because of the apparently impenetrable terminology in which the discipline of linguisitics wraps them. Here is a book that will help you to read for style without expecting you to become conversant with transformational grammar or functional systemic linguistics. After a brief outline of the topic of register and a history of its development (including its hijacking by linguisticians) this study considers literary register and register and power using examples from the work of writers such as Hardy, Beckett and John Fowles. Mikhail Bakhtin and Roland Barthes have influenced the author's approach and the result is an accessible rapprochement of language and literature. (publishers notes). Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
