ABSTRACT




A speech act or stylistics analysis is the study of literary and
non-literary texts using linguistic and literary descriptions.  The aim of this research work was a speech
act analysis of Akachi adimora-ezeigbo’s Trafficked.
The study critically analysed the data through the use of some levels of
stylistic description namely; graphology, morphology, syntax, lexico-semantics
and cohesion. The study discovered that at the graphological level, the author
used italics, comma and dash. Among these, it was found out that the author
used italics for stream of consciousness in order to reveal the real intention
of the speaker. At the morphological level, it was noticed that the author only
gave the full meaning of ‘OYSCO’,’WON’, etc which she introduced in the novel
and takes for granted the full meaning of other acronyms. She also
idiosyncratically employed more hyphenated compounding. The marked
lexico-syntactic patterns used in the text are basically for emphasis. At the
lexico-semantics level, proverbs were used to introduce the readers to the rich
culture of the African society. Also, cohesive devices employed by the author
were used to create links within the text. The conclusion to the work was that
the employment of speech/stylistic tools in the analysis of literary and
non-literary text enhances better understanding of such texts and the authors.
