Asst. Prof. Veronico N. Tarrayo, PhD, a faculty member of the Department of English and researcher of the Research Center for Social Sciences and Education, recently published a book chapter on English language teaching and learning activities, with emphasis on using stylistics in analyzing flash fiction pieces.
Applying stylistics on the work “Tulle, Chiffon, Organza” by Thomasian writer Carlomar Arcangel Daoana, Tarrayo investigated the following stylistic aspects: lexical categories, grammatical categories, figures of speech, and context and cohesion. Tarrayo then suggested teaching and learning activities based on the stylistic analysis of flash fiction pieces, to help fill the gap in local studies on the matter.
The chapter was published in the book “Literacies, Culture, and Society towards Industrial Revolution 4.0: Reviewing Policies, Expanding Research, Enriching Practices in Asia.” It was edited by Faud Abdul Hamied of the Indonesia University of Education and was published by Nova Science Publishers, Inc. Linguists from Japan, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, Singapore, and China, among others, contributed chapters to the book.
