Lexical and Trope Analysis of Short Story Eleven

NohaizMehmood,Rahat Bashir,Fouad Rashid Omar.

Stylistic analysis of literary texts has been the prime focus of stylisticians since the
emergence of this field. It provides a new lens to study any kind of text no matter it is
short story, poem or novel. This study focuses on the stylistic analysis of the short story
„Eleven‟ written by Sandra Cisneroz. The study is based on the stylistic analysisprinciples given by Geoffrey Leech and Mick Short. The philosophical story of eleven
year old girl is depicting the role of age, identity and power. Cisneroz‟s short story is
analyzed lexically with focus on nouns, verbs and adjectives. It is also analyzed through
Leech and Short‟s figures of speech by checking the tropes between sentences and
analyzing the metaphors and similes. During analysis it is revealed through the use of
particular verbs and adjectives that how the writer imitated the true image of existing
society. The lexicon or the use of vocabulary in the text is enough to dissect the text and
come-up with the core sense of the particular short story.
