Teaching & Learning Guide for: Linguistics in the Study and Teaching of Literature

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Linguistics can provide a technical vocabulary for talking about language, and an understanding of how everyday language is structured and functions. Literary texts are made from language, and although the relation between language in literature and language in general is not fully understood, linguistics can help theorize literary language, and suggest ways of thinking about literary form, and the relation between form and meaning in literature.
