Foregrounding • The notion of foregrounding, a term borrowed from the Prague School of Linguistics, is used by Leech and Short (1981: 48) to refer to ‘artistically motivated deviation’. • It refers to the range of stylistic effects that occur in literature, whether at the phonetic level (e.g., alliteration, rhyme), or the semantic level (e.g., metaphor, irony). Thus, readers with general linguistic skills -- and either high or low in literary competence -- will respond to foregrounding by finding it striking, affectively evocative, and interpretively challenging, even though it is very likely that readers with high levels of literary competence will more effectively develop a coherent understanding of the meaning of foregrounded passages.

Un article de la revue Meta (Volume 54, numéro 4, décembre 2009, p. 643-890) diffusée par la plateforme Érudit. The experience of deviation is often referred to as foregrounding and contrasted with the experience of feeling absorbed in a narrative. However, instead of simply assuming that foregrounding and absorption are mutually exclusive, they should also be considered as co-occurring: being absorbed as a result of a deviating aspect of a story. In the present paper we examine the co-occurrence of
