Artifacts of Language in Literature
ALTHOUGH literature studies and linguistics constitute distinct areas scientifically in terms of aims and methodology, they both rely extensively οn the language items (sound segments, phrases or linguistic system). Ιn this (preliminary) overview, we focus οn the linguistic units that inspire a writer, either spontaneously or consciously. The literature corpus, mainly Greek, reveals that authors are usually motivated by the character's different language-as a system or dialect, his pronunciation and his writing skills. These differences may be due to non-nativeness of the user, to the stage of acquisition or the lack of formal education. All the aspects of the language performance are used by authors to highlight the character's difference from the norm of the community and to promote the plot.
