The aim of the paper is to determine the stylistic and pragmatic values of the language of the Romanian publicistic pamphlet and to reveal the impact that the pamphletic language has on the readers. The aim is achieved through the following objectives: to define pamphlet and its main features, to examine the evolution of the pamphlet genre in the Romanian space; to select and analyze texts that are representative of the topic under study in order to support the hypotheses that have been put forward; to identify the functions of language in the publicistic pamphlet basing on the analyzed texts; to evaluate the impact of discursive aggression on the perception of pamphlet basing on the nine registers of verbal violence identified by the researcher R. Cesereanu and the phenomenon of onomastic deformation; to determine the functions of the comic in the construction of textual meanings and to identify the main types of the comic used by pamphleteers; to assess the significance of language creativity elements in achieving the pamphlet’s intention.

The scientific novelty of the paper lies in its original findings regarding the impact of the pamphletic language on the public and in reconsidering pamphlet through the prism of the new perspectives offered by the media resources. The originality of the paper lies in the applied orientation of the pamphlet study, based on the representative texts of the modern period, closely related to the current social and political situation in the Republic of Moldova and Romania. At the same time, the originality of the thesis lies in the elaboration of synthetic materials (in the form of tables and figures) on various aspects of pamphlet.

The results of the study have been reflected in 11 published scientific papers and in the reports presented at numerous national and international scientific events.

Theoretical importance. The present study uses an interdisciplinary approach, based on the perspectives of text linguistics, discourse analysis, pragmatics and stylistics. This approach opens up new opportunities for studying the Romanian pamphlet, including its audiovisual version, from the point of view of such aspects as: discursive strategies of seduction and manipulation, the pamphlet – image relationship, language creativity in opinion publicistic texts, the role of metagraphs in realizing language functions etc.

Application value. The obtained results can be used in the study of language functions, pragmatic linguistics, stylistics by philology students and specialists in the field, as well as a guideline for court processes to resolve conflicts regarding slander, discrimination, defending the right to image, etc.

Implementation of scientific results. The research results have been implemented at national and international conferences by presenting reports and publishing them in national scientific journals and scientific forums’ collections.
