_Greg Urban on Style:

"Style means a form of language use characterizable independently of the content or semantic meaning that is communicated, which constitutes a sign vehicle that contrasts with others in a culture" (Greg Urban, A Discourse Centered Approach to Culture: Native South American Myths and Rituals [Austin: University of Texas Press, 1991], 106).
