"Because of its wide and in-depth presentation, I feel sure that this handbook will be warmly welcomed by both students and teachers working in the flourishing field of stylistics." - Peter Verdonk, Emeritus Professor of Stylistics, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
"This is an indispensable beginner's guide to stylistics, packed full of practical advice and demonstrating the breadth of the discipline in its coverage of everything from the origin of stylistics in classical rhetoric to current advances in cognitive neuroscience." - Dan McIntyre, University of Huddersfield, UK

With this in mind, it is recommended that university libraries acquire a least one copy of this volume." - Kim Ebensgaard Jensen, The LINGUIST List
