About this Episode

Wait, stylistics is not about fashion magazines?
There's a job that involves watching The Wire?
And Hemingway's language wasn't as simple as everyone says?

In this interview with Professor Dan McIntyre from the University of Huddersfield, you'll get a super interesting guide to Stylistics, the study of style in language. Dan and I chat about corpus linguistics and audio-visual subtitles, and you'll learn more about what inspired him to start the popular language magazine, Babel. If you ever wanted a linguist in your pocket to answer all kinds of questions about subtitles and style, this is going to be the best hour of your week.
Thank you to Dan for this episode introduction.
