„It is part of the task of linguistics to describe texts, and all texts, including those prose or verse, which fall within any definition of literature and are accessible to analysis by the existing methods of linguistics.“

„The Text is not a definitive object.“

—  Roland Barthes French philosopher, critic and literary theorist 1915 - 1980

Proposition 1
Variant translation: The Text is not to be thought of as an object that can be computed. It would be futile to try to separate out materially works from texts.

„The history of the Bible text is a romance of literature,“

—  Frederic G. Kenyon British palaeographer and biblical and classical scholar 1863 - 1952

Quelle: The Story Of The Bible, Chapter I, The Bible And Recent Discoveries, p. 4
Kontext: The history of the Bible text is a romance of literature, though it is a romance of which the consequences are of vital import; and thanks to the succession of discoveries which have been made of late years, we know more about it than of the history of any other ancient book in the world.

„"Being" exists only as a neurological and linguistic illusion.“

„Literary texts do not exist on bookshelves: they are processes of signification materialized only in the practice of reading. For literature to happen, the reader is quite as vital as the author.“

„There is always the danger that the use of traditional grammatical terms with reference to a wide variety of languages may be taken to imply a secret belief in universal grammar. Every analysis of a particular ‘language’ must of necessity determine the values of the ad hoc categories to which traditional names are given. What is here being sketched is a general linguistic theory applicable to particular linguistic descriptions, not a theory of universals for general linguistic description.“

—  John Rupert Firth English linguist 1890 - 1960
