THE TEXTUAL SEMIOTICАL ELEMENTS VS AUTHOR’S SEMANTICS IN A BRITISH TEXT ( IN H.V. MORTON’S «WOMEN AND TEA» )
The text as a communicative product and receptacle of the author’s individual semantics is analyzed on three levels: semiotic, linguistic, and semantic. Textual semiotic features of the story are in the main focus. They work together in a kind of meaningful continuity that specifi es and narrows the textual meaning towards that of the author’s semantics. The achieved panorama of their continual narrowing function is supported with the data from our another forthcoming article for the completeness of the results. Among them is the full set of English verbal forms of the story whatever is known as a decisive tool for the author in building up of the content. In the current story, there is a noticeable massive contrast of “habituality” and stability of the fi nite present simple forms and “detailed chronicality” of the fi nite past simple forms that get associated with the vibration of the textual semiotic features among the corresponding “habituality” and “specific personal experience” of the author.
