  Authoring Challenges for Device Independence
Stylistic design is also heavily influenced by the capabilities of the target device and preferences expressed by the user.

Stylistics, however, observes not only the nature of an expressive means, but also its potential capacity of becoming a stylistic device.
Stylistic devices carry a greater amount of information because if they are at all predictable they are less predictable than expressive means.
Thus the stylistic device based on the first principle is metaphor, on the second, metonymy and on the third, irony A metaphor is a relation between the dictionary and contextual logical meanings based on the affinity or similarity of certain properties or features of the two corresponding concepts.

 Pen Computing Magazine: Fujitsu Stylistic 3400 review
Long live the Stylistic!" The original line of Stylistics, dating back to the original Stylistic 500, then extending to its Stylistic 1000, 1200, and finally 2300 successors which pretty much shared the original design, is dead.
From a ruggedness angle, the new Stylistic continues along the line of its predecessors: it is a durable device but not one designed for harsh environments.
Bottomline: the consolidation of the former Stylistic and Point lines (both remain available for a while) into the new Stylistic 3400 comes perhaps a bit as a surprise, but there is no doubt that the new design is superior in almost every respect.

 Rhetorical Criticism of the Hebrew Bible
Stylistic critics today are not necessarily neglecting the message, of course, but sometimes they neglect the way that style helps conveys the message.
The stylistics are seen not just for their artistry, but also for their purpose—and the interest in persuasion requires that the interpreter takes the historical and sociological setting seriously.
The fourth step is similar: identifying the stylistic devices, with particular attention given to their function in persuading the audience of a view.

 Rhetorical Criticism
Stylistic critics today may be neglecting the message in a different way--overlooking the purpose of the message.
The stylistics are seen not just for their artistry, but also for their purpose, and the interest in persuasion requires that the interpreter study the historical and sociological setting carefully.
Analyze the rhetorical devices and style, asking "the function of particular devices of style in their interactive context, what attitudes they should evoke in the audience, how do they contribute to the interaction desired by the author."136 These techniques then help us see the author's view of the situation.

 Intertextuality and Media
In contemporary media scholarship, the concept of intertextuality is used to describe both an interpretive practice of audiences and a stylistic device consciously employed by producers of media.
Turning to the view of intertextuality as stylistic device, the essay identifies parodic allusion, creative appropriation, and self-reflexive reference as three distinct intertextual strategies.
Far from being a consequence of the death of the author (as the first version would suggest), intertextuality is an identifiable stylistic device consciously employed by the author, or in the case of media texts by the producer, to invite a particular audience response.

 USE STYLE IN YOUR SPEECHES
When you choose stylistic devices for your speeches, you should have similar rationales.
The speaker who incorporates style into her speech is like a homebuilder who adds the fine trim and decorations to a home, is like a gardener who manicures green lawns, is like the artist painting aesthetic beauty, is like, well, you get the idea.
Wording a given portion of a speech just right, delivering a portion of a speech, organizing the speech, each could literally take forever since there are an infinite number of ways in which to do each of the parts of speech.

One stylistic consistency is that I always introduce the original character in the footage from 20 years ago and then segue into a sequence that features them today.

 Balancing Passion and Reason in Tennyson's "Tithonus" and Jane Eyre   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Similarly, both authors convey that a proper balance of passion and reason leads to one's proper station in the universe: for Jane, a happy life with Rochester, and for Tithonus, death.
The stylistic device of first-person narrative lends itself well to the exploration of this theme in both works.
This device, coupled with the narrator recounting events of the past, offers a sense of objective subjectivity -- an accurate, insightful knowledge of their subjective pasts -- which gives the narrator the appearance of authority.

Although I’m suggesting that the stylistic economy with which Breitbach achieves his effect could not be matched by English, it would be unwise to argue that no English translation of Breitbach’s novel, however inspired, could ever render the deliberately distancing formality of this report-as-novel.
As a grammatical device consonant mutations are much less common in the world’s languages than suffixes, and consequently they have the allure of the unusual.
At the same time, it’s well within my capacity both as linguist and as learner to recognize and relish certain stylistic effects from the speakers’ deployments of the suffixes, and to celebrate the liveliness and coherence of tone that the emphatic-deictic suffix brings to their Gaelic discourse.

The line of the entire car springs from here, combining a light stylistic 'aggressiveness' with strikingly elegant forms: an impression that is underlined by the light clusters, which are delightful design features.
This pillar has a double stylistic function: it links to the curve of the rear window, above the rear axle (another clear stylistic expression of strength, robustness and dynamism), and embraces the passenger compartment thanks to the stylistic device of the classic Alfa Romeo 'elbow'.
For example the 'muscular' wing which, next to the generous wheels, marks the widest point of the car, unequivocally conveys the ideal of a car that is firmly 'anchored to the ground'.

 CONFUSED LANGUAGE AS A DELIBERATE LITERARY DEVICE
[8] I propose that we view these words from the mouth of the Sailor as a clever literary device in which confused syntax is utilized to portray the confusion that characterized the moment.
In all the cases, I propose that we view the confused language as a deliberate literary device invoked to portray confusion, excitement, or bewilderment.
However, if we consider the peculiar circumstances of the episode, it becomes clear that the confused speech created here by the biblical writer is an attempt to reproduce the effect of the girls all talking at once in their excitement at meeting Saul.

It is difficult to determine whether or not this is a deliberate stylistic device, but it does give the overall impression of repression and understatement.
To be honest, it seems that the artist has tried to use the colouring as an artistic/plot device and hasn’t quite pulled it off.
Admittedly, this does work well in the occasional frame, such as during the dream sequence page, where there is a red wash, however, it seems to me that the device is overused and gives a very strange end result.

To underline the functional continuity between the facia and the console, the designers aimed to achieve stylistic continuity between them: the console, which is raised as if stretching towards the facia, has a sporty gearlever with short, precise movements, and a comfortable armrest that incorporates a large insulated storage compartment.
The engineers and stylists only had one goal: to combine sportiness with roominess and the quality of life on board.
