Linguistic Forms and Text Functions


  • Mimoza Hasani Pllana Ph.D. in Philology, University of Sofia, Bulgaria



Discussions and efforts to separate forms of literary and non-literary texts date from the ancient times, through the works of Plato and Aristotle. In-depth studies are included in Aristotle's Poetics and Rhetoric work. Discussions of this nature continue to exist today, mainly related to language as the most powerful tool for literature, but also for other areas related to literature, such as philosophy, history, journalism and other sciences etc. In this paper we carry out an interdisciplinary research based on theories and practices of literary theory and linguistic, media and cultural research. Our work is based on the comparative methodology through which we research distinctions of a literary text from a non-literary one. Further research queries include defining aesthetic criteria or value, structure, style and other particular elements that distinguish and approximate these types of texts, and also how do we distinguish a literary text from a text that belongs to journalism, history and science spectres.
