"Chapter 6 of Leech and Short’s Style in Fiction was devoted to the notion of “mind
style”, which had been introduced four years earlier by Roger Fowler in order to capture
“any distinctive linguistic representation of an individual mental self” (“Linguistics and
the Novel” 103). In this paper I consider the extent of Leech and Short’s contribution to
the development of the concept of mind style, and then go on to show how the study of
mind style, and of fictional minds more generally, has developed over the last 25 years in
both narratology and stylistics. "
