- Short (1996) is the best of the ‘toolbox’ approaches to stylistics (lists of what to look for, directions for any analysis) and contains many illustrations and exercises.

- See, for example, Style special issue, Pedagogy of style and stylistics, 37 (1) (2003): 1–104 (which also refers in turn to further resources); also Clark and Zyngier (2003).Google Scholar
