Functional Stylistics and Peripeteic Texts

In: The State of Stylistics

Using a pragmatically based linguistic description apparatus to study literary use of language is not unproblematic. Observations show that literary use of language violates the norms contained by this apparatus. With this paper I suggest how we can deal with this problem by setting up a frame for the use of a functional linguistic description apparatus on literary texts. As an extension of this suggestion I present a model for the description of a specific type of literary texts.
