  • 摘要:The study is a stylistic analysis of language use in religious discourse. It is a very significant study because apart from using an integrative discursive approach to investigate phenomena, we do not know of any study that uses a contrastive approach to analyze style in Christian and Islamic sermons. Selecting and organizing language, as well as deviating from its norms is the concern of style. The study investigates linguistic dimensions of Christian and Islamic sermons, hinging on the Communicative Model stylistic theory as analytical framework, although insights from pragmatics and rhetoric (discrete fields of knowledge) give the study illuminating directions. The findings include: religious sermons convey sacred messages; Christian and Islamic sermons are conveyed with similar stylistic devices; the major areas of divergence in the sermons of both religions is that they use different nomenclatures and contextual structures.
