What Is Stylistic Linguistic Analysis All about

0 Comment

Within the description, an attempt focusing on the choice of vocabulary, noun use, adjectival use, verbs, and adverbs, among others, are of importance. The grammatical analysis looks at essential grammatical features as used within the text including the type of sentence, the structure of sentences, sentence complexity, clause structure and type, noun and verb phrases, and word classes among many other grammatical issues as used by the artist. Given the foregoing background information, this paper dedicates its analysis to looking at the general stylistic features of three literary materials that fall into written text, spoken text and multimodal text. The three texts are compared and analyzed within the lexical and grammatical point of view. While tracing the theme of love, this paper compares and analyzes Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and Hamilton’s Baucis and Philemon within the linguistic and stylistic literary categories. Lexical Analysis: Adjectival use Within various literary settings, Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby virtually considered an American classic owing to its use of language. The language used in the essay is full of figurative language with imagery use. The artist often uses adjectives in a bid to create a romantic feeling and compound the theme of love. Face was sad and lovely with bright things in it, bright eyes and bright passionate mouth- but there was an excitement in her voice that men who had cared for her found difficult to forget… The above line is full of adjectives. Quite often than not, the artist uses contradictory adjectives, for instance, sad and lovely, but as Fitzgerald exposes in the text, this is a character exemplified by Daisy, and as such, the deliberate use of the word ‘bright’ largely captures Daisy’s character. However, earlier use of the word ‘sad’ deprives Daisy of this trait, thus creating a suspicion intention.
