WR 311 - Style

(3.00 cr.)

Students learn how to recognize, discuss, and manipulate forms of discourse at the level of the word, the phrase, the clause, the sentence, the paragraph, and the whole text. In mastering a substantial vocabulary of classical stylistic devices, including figures of speech and tropes, students come to appreciate the link between linguistic form and audience effects. The stylistic skills that students acquire in this course can be adapted for a variety of public, creative, and professional situations.

Prerequisite: WR 220  or written permission of the instructor.
