Pedagogical stylistics since 2007: A baker's dozen

1 Citation (Scopus)


This chapter offers a survey review of research and activity in pedagogical stylistics since 2007. The survey refers to first language as well as foreign language education, mainly in English, though an increasing and fruitful accommodation of pluri- and multilingualism is also referred to. Topics covered include language awareness, focus on form research, empirical research in pedagogical stylistics and relevant educational research publications, curriculum developments, the cognitive turn in stylistics, uses of corpus stylistics and creative writing pedagogy. The survey shows an encouraging range and variety of activities, including more direct attention to secondary schooling levels, and evidence of growing acceptance and valuing of linguistic approaches to literary study. At the same time, there is a need to continue and even step up training and development programmes for practitioners who have not yet been reached or remain to be convinced of the value of pedagogical stylistics.
