Structure of Dissertation: introduction; three chapters; general conclusions and recommendations; bibliography of 522 titles; tables (14), annexes (16). The basic text is 144 pages. The obtained results are published in 15 scientific papers.

Purpose of the thesis lies in elucidating the grammatical, semantic and functional peculiarities of the deverbal nouns from the hymnophraphic religious text, in this case the akathist text.

Objectives of the research: the identification of the patterns of nominalization of the verbal bases, the systematization of the deverbal nouns characteristic of the religious text; characterization of deverbal nouns found in akathists from the perspective of significance levels; evaluation of the multifunctionality of the names formed from a verbal basis in the Romanian akatistographic system.

Scientific novelty and originality. The current study is a supplement to research in the last three decades focused on the religious text, but which have avoided its hymnographic level. The scientific novelty lies in the systemic character of the approach. It is a first study that reveals the functionality and particularities of verbal nominations in the specialized discursive framework of the akathistographic text.

The obtained results contribute to the solution of an important scientific problem, by identifying the primary and secondary semantic values, proposing a broader typology of the semantic classes of deverbal nouns specific to Christian hymnography.

The theoretical value consists in: deepening the research on verbal nominations in Romanian; systematization of the semantic values of deverbal nouns; delimitation of the functionality of Romanian deverbs in a distinct textual framework.

The applied value of research. The research results can be capitalized, thanks to the interdisciplinary nature, in the development of university courses for philological specialties (grammar, semantics, pragmatics), but also for theological specialties (liturgical practice, introduction to church art, church songs).

Implementation of scientific results: The results of the research were reflected in 17 scientific publications and communications, presented in the framework of national and international scientific forums.
