Review Introducing stylistic analysis: Practicing the basics (a review)
Introducing stylistic tools to teach language patterns, cultural references, and meaning based on linguistic textual evidence cannot always be a straightforward task. There is a plethora of books available but most of them are produced for advanced researchers and native learners of the English language. In fact, few stylistic books are accessible to foreign language learners. This book under review is written by an EFL Yemeni Professor, who comes from a background that allows him to understand the difficulties that EFL and ESL learners face. Needless to mention that learners whose native language other than English lack the cultural and linguistic competence that might help them as readers to analyse, understand and interpret texts correctly.
