Journal’s Aim and Scope

The journal is published because of serious changes in contemporary philology. Its basic object, besides a text and a natural language, is a person (Homo Loquens, particularly) at the end of the 20th and at the beginning of the 21st centuries. It leads to the changes in the image of philological sciences and subjects, philology itself, the type of its links to other humanitarian sciences. The cooperation of literary theory and linguistics, folklore studies and journalism has the distinct common core which is formed by the three human-oriented fields of knowledge: humanitarian semiotics, philological hermeneutics, and text theory. These three disciplines appeared to be the most significant in the anthropocentric turn in philology.

The journal is published in the Altai region because of the Homo Loquens significance in the scientific works of regional higher education institutions linguists, literary critics, folklore theorists, and journalists.  Those are the philological studies in V.M. Shukshin’s works, general studies in Altai folklore, in Russian literature mythological poetics and semiotics, philological studies in communication and communicative rhetoric, apprehension and description of Russian, Altaic, and some Western European languages in the anthropocentric aspect, and the evolution of a local ethnos philological theory.
