The possibility of revealing a complex of author's individualizing features is proved. This paper emphasizes the importance of studying the signs of the graphic and communicative levels of the analysis of dialogical texts, provides the examples of implementation of such signs. In this article the relevance of combining linguistic and quantitative methods of analysis in revealing the author's individualizing identificational features is proved, the paper also outlines the prospects for further research in the field of studying the linguistic personality of the digital age.
