This paper explores the concept of speech figures in Croatian language textbooks for elementary and secondary school, and in rhetoric textbooks. At the beginning, a theoretical framework is set, which explains what part in rhetoric the speech figures have taken and what in stylistics, in the manner that both disciplines are first defined and then their mutual relationship is explained, taking in the consideration that the stylistics has been developed on the foundations of ancient rhetoric. The corpus for analysis were textbooks of the Croatian language which are prevalent in schools and are being compared with several rhetorical textbooks of Croatian and foreign authors. The aim was to show the differences in teaching the speech figures so we compared the representation of those figures used in the textbooks of the Croatian language to ones that were used in the rhetoric textbooks, how are they defined, is there a difference in the classification, are there examples of public speaking also in textbooks oft he Croatian language or are such examples specific to rhetorical textbooks and vice versa, and how are the speech figures practiced. The analysis results showed that the greatest differences appear in the classification of speech figures while the large differences in the definition from different authors cannot be found. Analysis of the speech figures processing showed that in the Croatian language textbooks appear examples specific only to literature, while in the rhetorical textbooks the examples of public speaking are most common which then confirms our hypothesis stated in the beginning.
