      At a recent conference on the linguistics of English (ISLE, Freiburg, 2008) I was
      surprised by the number of talks on topics that for me were clearly related to stylistics.
      My surprise was not that stylistics papers should be so prevalent at a linguistics conference
      but that the presenters of these papers seemed not to consider their work as primarily
      stylistic in nature. Most positioned themselves as historical linguists or sociolinguists
      and presented their work as contributions to historical linguistics and sociolinguistics
      respectively, despite the fact that all of them were concerned with aspects of style. Along
      with a number of PALA colleagues, I gave a paper in a dedicated stylistics strand, though
      in retrospect it now seems that it would perhaps have been more valuable to have integrated
      our explicitly stylistic papers into the conference generally; after all, the interest
      in stylistics was clearly there, even if it was not designated as such.
