Abstract. The article deals with the features of actualizing the category of temporality in the document texts of the 18th century, made up in the offices of the Don Army Land and kept in the State Archive of Volgograd region. The author highlights the lexical, morphological and syntactic means of text time expression. They include the names of time units, months, designations of reference to a particular moment or to the length of time, the sequence of events, etc. The special place in the texts is occupied by the specific dates which record the facts of reality and define the text time of document as objective period. The date of drawing up the document is the starting time point of the entire text. The morphological tools include verbal forms which are grouped into content units. They describe the correlation between events and the time of document creation and perform the text-forming function. The model of such temporal organization of the army charters is presented in this paper. The syntactic means are expressed by prepositional-case structures, complex sentences with temporary conjunctions, adverbial participles expressing different temporal relations. The compositional and speech structure of the documents demonstrates the interaction of the old and new traditions of their design and the actualization of temporality in them.

Key words: text category, temporality, document text, regional documents, Don Army Land.
