I’m glad to start using a blog. It’s my first experience and I never heard about blogging as an element of studying of stylistics or something else. So it’s a new practice, which, I think, will be very useful and interesting for me and my university mates.
As for answers on questions, I agree with I.Galperin’s point of view that “stylistics is a branch of linguistics”.
By the end of this course, I hope we will acquire skills in using speech figures. I guess stylistics will help us to make our speech more aesthetic, expressive and interesting. From my point of view, to express thoughts clearly for listeners/readers is an essential component of my future profession.
Thanks for your attention!
