Author(s): C Oumayal
Abstract: The popular usage of the idea of style shows the appropriateness as an idea in the theory of language. Several expressions may divide a function which is the leading one for a speaker in a given situation. The normal language use of the idea of style, therefore, relies on the existence of a crude purpose for a particular speech act which in turn allows a generalization of the meaning used. Literary texts are not limited speech acts with a simple reason; they are scandalously complex in their verbal structure and are not able to have certified to them any simple declaration of their purpose. Selecting a precise meaning between close options will be critically important in these texts a lot more frequently than in normal language. The idea of style then becomes more and more unsuitable as move from normal discourse to the study of the language and lastly to the study of literature; it is exactly its partial suitability in normal discourses which demonstrate its entire unsuitability in literary reading.
