A Stylistic Study of English Aphorisms of “Life and Death”



Lecturer : Nadya Khairy Muhamed Said


1-Introduction

Aphorism is a concise statement designed to make a point or illustrate a commonly held belief. Aphorisms are often seen as clever tidbits of wisdom. They are more than that in the sense that they are a means to express a philosophy or a spirit. An aphorism stands or falls by itself. It does not support nor is it held up by a system ( Gross,2003:15). A good example is put by ( Stephen Vincent Benet) :
Life is not lost by dying ; life is lost minute by minute , day by dragging day , in all the thousand small uncaring ways.
