Abstract. The article deals with the latest tendencies in the development of text linguistics, defines the importance of linguistics being focused to studies of various text types. Having considered the issue of text linguistics status in the 20th and the early 21st centuries the author underlines it that text linguistics should be referred to a socially significant area of knowledge which reflects a great demand for text variations in modern communication practices. It is stated that in a modern text linguistics paradigm the notion of the text embraces both limited and receptive approaches which open ways to text analysis directed "from form to meaning" and "from meaning to form" thus providing opportunities for overcoming the text producer's subjectivity and asymmetry in verbalizing personal ideas. Being a humanitarian field of knowledge text linguistics can't be referred to a science with accurate tools of measurement. However, its latest development is marked with a trend of accuracy and exactness in research procedures, distinguished meta-language, categories and units of studies. In conclusion the author underlines it that the latest trends in social communications present new objects for investigations, and text linguistics with its combinations of research techniques could be efficient in meeting challenges resulted from new text forms appearance.

Key words: text, text linguistics, discourse, method, text communication, social communication.
