  • She pioneers in a new research area of social philosophy – “Philosophy of foreignism as a semiotic text of culture” with a focus on intensifying the degree of communicative exchange between bearers of various cultures and language codes (for one of the parties it is a foreign language). The author explores the development of forms of attitudes, forms of behavior, and value-based orientations perceived by communicants as different from their own ones.
  • Introduced the category of “foreignism” to the scholarly apparatus of social philosophy. The category of “foreignism” is a pole that connects the individual and the “foreign” within the ongoing sociocultural processes: a special form of diversity resulting from the intensification of the communicative load on an individual, their dialogic activity at language borders. When comprehending the concept of foreignism, one develops the ability to look at the world and one’s place therein through the perception of another person. 
  • Developed a methodology of original concepts within the framework of social philosophy and the philosophy of language. The methodology is based on the identification of conceptual forms of theoretical and practical expression of the driving forces of social development. The study focus shifts to the analysis of a sphere that lies in-between the whole (society) and a certain part of society (in this case – foreignism). The study shows that the role of foreignism is growing in an increasingly complex world, while the “in-between” can be viewed as a separate category.

The article considers linguistic aspects of polycode hypertext functioning in a polylingual context investigating its potential in changing the value orientation of a mass recipient. Hypertext is regarded as a means of communication uniting multilingual streams of conceptual sense, which is represented by means of verbal and non-verbal codes as well as perceptive images of multi-level modalities. Resistance to hidden manipulative influence is an acute problem nowadays. Hypertext as an asymmetric and polymodal phenomenon is seen from the point of view of its functioning in a communicative reality. The psycholinguistic experimental study using the method of semantic differential shows the main trends of creolized hypertext development and perception. Pragmatic potential of different parameters of visual components for manipulation of the public conscience is identified. Polycode text usage changes categorial realia of communication through information perception management resulting in modification of recipients’ value orientation.
