Syntax and style

Proust:
Le style, pour L'ecrivain, aussi bein que la colour pour le peinture, est une question non de technique mais de vision.

Joyce
"I'd like a language that is above all languages, a language to which all will do service; I cannot express myself in Englsih without enclosing myself in a tradition.(cited Thompson, 'The language or Finnegans Wake" sewanee review(1964) no 72 pp72-79)
