Following the steps of De Saussure, Charles Bally wrote his book Traité de Stylistique, considering stylistics as a systemic study (taylor 1980, 21). Bally came up with his \"expessive theory\" believing that languistic forms convey thought and feelings.
During last decade many eminent scholars have published valuable books on stylistics. Mick Short and Geoffrey Leech are the leading figures in this field. Especially Leech's Language and Literature; Style and Foregrounding (2008) is accepted by the scholars as another of his classic works in stylistics after his A Linguistic Guide to English Poetry (1969).
For Lecercle, the best way to define stylistics is to give up defining it at all, because it is controverscial. However, Paul Simpson (2006) tries to ommit this ambiguity about stylistics believing it as a leading sub-discipline because many books, research journals, and international conferences are dedicated to it; and it is taught in language, literatue, and linguistic department over the world (2).
In his book Linguistic Stylistcs (1973), Nils Erik Enkvist writes: We may. . . regard stylistics as a subdepartment of linguistics and give it a specia subsection dealing with the peculiarities of literary texts. We may choose to make stylistics a subdepartment of literary studies which may draw on linguistic method. Or we may regard stylistics as an autonomous discipline which draws freely, and eclectically, on methods from linguistics and from literary study (27).
The relationship between stylistics and sociolinguistics illustrated by Turner in his book Stylistics (1973) that \"stylistics is that part of linguistics, which concentrates on variation in the use of language, often, but not exclusively, with special attention to the most conscious and complex uses of language in literature\" (7). 153554b96e
