Profile Information

Welcome to the Stylistics Research Centre at the University of Huddersfield.

The Centre provides a focal point for research and pedagogy in stylistics (the linguistic analysis of style in literary and non-literary discourse), one of the key research areas of Linguistics and Modern Languages at Huddersfield. We have an international reputation for our work in stylistics and are recognised for the applied focus of our research. We regularly welcome visiting scholars and have, at any one time, around 20 PhD students based the centre. 


Our approach to stylistics is inclusive and encompasses the analysis of both literary and non-literary discourse from a perspective that places stylistics firmly within the discipline of linguistics. Our areas of specific expertise include the following:

  • Cognitive stylistics
  • Corpus stylistics
  • Critical stylistics
  • Historical stylistics
  • Literary stylistics
  • Pedagogical stylistics
