The results obtained are reflected in 34 scientific studies and critical articles The structure of the thesis: introduction, six chapters, conclusions, bibliographical references from the 330 titles, 249 pages.

Area of research: Theory of literature and theory of the text.

Goal and objectives of research: the analysis of the concepts of literary work and text in the context of the linguistic turning of the literary studies in the (post)modernist era, from a multidisciplinary point of view, in a synchronic and diachronic plan. The formulation of a way of dialogic investigation, interdiscursivity of literary concepts and phenomena, approached as subjective constructs. The conceptual description of text and literary work in structural and text linguistics, discourse theory and analysis, semiotics, hermeneutics and deconstruction; the approach to J. Derrida’s deconstruction as a paradigmatic form of textualism, which founds a specific ethics of the literary reading.

Methodological and theoretical support: constructivism, structuralism and poststructuralism, comparativism, discourse analysis and theory, semiotics, hermeneutics and deconstruction.

Scientific novelty of the investigation consists of the critical and compared inspection of the notions, and senses of the text and literary work from a multidisciplinary point of view, for the promotion of a theoretical and multiaspectual model of approaching literary concepts. The semiolinguistic approach is intertwined with the literary and philosophical one, from a constructive and neo-pragmatic point of view.

Theoretical and the application significance of the thesis are assigned by the complex interpretations of some current subjects of semiotics and literary theory. It promotes ideas of a dialogical and interdisciplinary literary theory, of a radical, critical and textual hermeneutics, as a synthesis of the philosophical, semiotical and poststructuralist tradition, which pays equal attention to both the abysmality of the sense and the values of the meaning, as well as to the formal properties of texts as a way of literary access to the existential problematic.

Implementation of scientific data in resarch and didactics: formation of universitary courses and of different types of coursebooks and masters and doctorate degrees theses.
