Лінгвальні вияви оповідних голосів у наративі (на матеріалі новели Василя Стефаника „Нитка”)
The article provides a foundation for the necessity of differentiating a number of narrative discourse categories as well as for the importance of taking into account and clarifying the essence of the category of “storytelling voice” in cases of studying the means of the teller’s realisation of a particular fiction story. A storytelling voice is understood as a means of language (semantic, syntactic, pragmatic, rhetoric-stylistic) realisation of narrative instances from different persons, which forms the discourse of the story told. A story written by Ukrainian classic writer Vasyl Stefanyk, A Thread (1927), is used as material for analysing language means of realisation as well as for interweaving and differentiating the author’s and the unknown main heroine’s narrative voices. It is emphasised that a linguistic approach to the analysis of a fiction text is very revealing because it allows the researcher to single out the types of narrative instances as speaking persons, and then explicate their points of view, focus, empathy, and other constituents of a narrative.
