Corpus Stylistics in Principles and Practice: A Stylistic by Yufang Ho

By Yufang Ho

In this publication, Yufang Ho compares the textual content type distinction among the 2 types of John Fowles' The Magus, exemplifying the methodological rules and analytic practices of the corpus stylistic approach.

The Magus was first released in 1966 and was once revised and republished via Fowles in 1977.  Fowles' personal touch upon the second one version used to be that it was once 'rather greater than a stylistic revision.' The booklet explores how the revised model is linguistically diverse from the unique, specially by way of perspective (re) representation.  The corpus stylistic strategy followed combines qualitative and quantitative comparability to verify the general textual content sort difference.  The research demonstrates that machine assisted tools can determine major linguistic beneficial properties which literary critics haven't spotted and supply a extra exact descriptive foundation for literary interpretation of (either version) of the novel.  This research of The Magus serves as a case learn and exemplar of the way corpus innovations can be utilized commonly within the research of linguistics.
