The Course

The goal of improving the textual analysis of information access systems is a motivating factor for stylistic research. In addition, readers, authors, and information specialists of whatever persuasion are aware of stylistic variation. This provides us with the added philological motivation for research: that of understanding text, readers, and authors better. Style may be roughly defined as the “manner” in which something is expressed, as opposed to the “content” of a message. Stylistic variation depends on author preferences and competence, familiarity, genre, communicative context, expected characteristics of the intended audience and untold other factors, and it is expressed through subtle variation in frequencies of otherwise insignificant features of a text that, taken together, are understood as stylistic indicators by a particular reader community. Modeling, representing, and utilizing this variation is the business of stylistic analysis.
