It was not the best textbook to use with non-native speakers of English. We had a hard time, really.

Pretty complicated theory, but extensive examples that make it easier to understand and evaluate.I found something new almost in all of the variables of stylistics - sociolinguistic narrative, register, dialect, sociolect, even in the basic stylistic device metaphor, etc. The layout made it easy to read and switch between the information you need and don't need, thus it was possible to read it fast.

Excellent introduction for anyone with no or almost no experience in the field. The book offers a comprehensive overview of a number of areas as well as provides the reader with the necessary sources for further reading.
