Read Examples of Foregrounding in Stylistics The study of literary stylistics or distinctive styles in writing looks at the role of foregrounding by analyzing the effect that it has on a piece as a whole.

In other words, how does foregrounding impact the composition of a piece and the experience of readers? These excerpts from scholarly writing on the subject attempt to define this. Whether the foregrounded pattern deviates from a norm, or whether it replicates a pattern through parallelism , the point of foregrounding as a stylistic strategy is that it should acquire salience in the act of drawing attention to itself," Simpson Poetic metaphor , a type of semantic deviation, is the most important instance of this type of foregrounding," Childs and Fowler Tomlin, that looks at the device on a much smaller scale.

There are clauses which convey the most central or important ideas in text, those propositions which should be remembered. And there are clauses which, in one way or another, elaborate on the important ideas, adding specificity or contextual information to help in the interpretation of the central ideas.

The clauses which convey the most central or important information are called foregrounded clauses, and their propositional content is foreground information. The clauses which elaborate the central propositions are called backgrounded clauses, and their propositional content is background information.

So, for example, the boldfaced clause in the text fragment below conveys foregrounded information while the italicized clauses convey background. Sources Childs, Peter, and Roger Fowler.
