Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Along with a willingness to change one’s mind in the face of contrary evidence, another defining characteristic of stylistics is rigour, a quality demonstrated throughout the volume. [...] the volume as a whole is characterized by openness and a willingness to engage in genuine debate, which is refreshing and to be welcomed."Dan McIntyre in: Language and Literature 2010 19: 396 "To those involved in CL and CP, this book is a must read and frames the research agenda as it stands at the present moment. There is no doubt that the next several years of CP research will have to answer to the gains, gaps, and goals identified in this collection."Liberty Kohn in: Journal of Literary Semantics 39/2010 "[...] provocative and inspiringfor future work in the field."Sara Whiteley in: Pragmatics and Cognition 18:1/2010
