Authors : Ommolbanin Zolfagahri and Romisa Jaefari Tirtashi

Abstract: Style is special procedure utilized by an author or poet as the creator of a work and the abundance of elements inferred from the text can attract the audience's attention to the fact that the work has been created by a special procedure and the author has been consciously or unconsciously adhered to this style from the beginning to the end of the research. Stylistic analysis is done at three levels: linguistic, literary and intellectual. At the linguistic level, phonemes, terminology and syntax are discussed. Rhetorical creativities of a text are analyzed in literary part and at the intellectual part, theme, subjects and ideas proposed by the author are investigated. The current study seeks to identity lingual style elements at Monsha’at by Ghaem Magham to reach the conclusion that his style is different from other authors practicing at his time, thus he is considered one of major pioneer sand personalities of the Qajar era. Accordingly, the main question in the current study is that: what are the most important stylistic-lingual features of Monsha’at’s? The result proves that the stylistic-lingual elements of this great Persian work at the phonetic level include metonymy, movazeneh (balance in terms of words), ezdevaj (duality) and riming (saj’e). At the literal level, the stylistic features include moderate use of Arabic words, lexical dialogism, multiplicity of synonyms, compounds, conjunctions and particularly sequential presentation of adjectives and at the syntactic level the most important stylistic elements include use of short sentences, use of conjunctive sentences, multiplicity of verbs and the omission of verb by a literal symmetry, etc.
