Literariness: a definition

Jakobson defined “literariness” as “a property of texts and contexts (which) inheres in patterns of language in use as opposed to patterns of language in isolation” (quoted in Simpson 2004: 10) Extra-textual aspects of ‘literariness’ -“multiple intersections among texts, readers, institutions, and sociocultural contexts” (Simpson and Hall 2002: 136).
