Abstract: In this article we try to detect, identify, select and correlate the recurring stylistic processes and their semantic effects in blessed or private Azouz Begag’s paradise. This novel Bént ou le paradis prive, has indeed a corpus of comparative, metaphorical expressions which are associated with different isotopes, to be read as exotic and sometimes humorist. The comic tone of Begag’s style is even more obvious by overabundant employment of more or less innovative linguistic reappropriations and atypical lexical creations, part of a discourse assigned to a young character who adopts a juvenile language with naives resonance and sincere ipso facto. pp. 133–143


Keywords: style, comparison, metaphor, hyperbole, real effect, exoticism
