Foregrounding

Foregrounding

Foregrounding means giving prominence to something, in a literary work that would not be accentuated in ordinary discourse. Again it means the action of emphasizing something by means of linguistic devices. In literary text, it occurs when any deviation from the normal resources of language is found. The deviation may be a matter of grammar, metaphor or any other figure of speech. Its effect is to push the relevant part of the text into the readers’ attention, to place it as if in the foregrounding of a picture.
