Abstract:   (1907 Views)
This article investigates the features of style in Chimamanda Adichie’s Americanah. It focuses on the identification of features of style in line with contemporary stylistics and the analysis of the same features through graphophonological, syntactic and lexico-semantic parameters, in which certain linguistic features are given foregrounded realizations. Deploying descriptive-analytic method and using over a hundred stylistic innovations identified in the novel, the study affirms that meaning in a text is realized through the levels of style explications and that the identified features add value to the text and increases its tenor.
