Syntactic Deviations in the Novel "The Sound and the Fury"
Alirezazadeh, Pooria; Talebinezhad, Mohammad Reza
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v5 n5 p222-226 Oct 2014
This article looks at William Faulkner's work "The Sound and the Fury." The goals are to investigate different types of syntactic deviations in the novel, and how these deviations helped the writer to create a literary work in the field of modernist literature and stream of consciousness. To this end, the theoretical framework for linguistic deviations proposed by Leech (1969) has been chosen. Most prior researches on linguistic deviations especially syntactic deviations focused on poetic text and classic prose. The present study was designed to address syntactic deviations in modern prose, and it highlights the role of syntactic deviations in modernist literature and psychological novel.
