- the idiolect (individual speech) of a writer;
- poetic speech;
3. Comparative Stylistics.It analyses the stylistic resources at the crossroad of two languages, or two literatures and is obviously linked to the theory of translation:
4.Decoding Stylistics was developed in the works of L. V. Shcherba, B. A. Larin, M. Riffaterre. R. Jackobson and other scholars of the Prague linguistic circle. Prof. I. V. Arnold also made a serious contribution into this branch of stylistic study.
The act of speech, has the performer (sender) of speech and the recipient.The performer does the act of encoding and the recipient does act of decoding of the information.
