Abstract: The author of the article analyzes the role of stylistic research in the history of Ukrainian academic linguistics and traces the connection of stylistics with the theory and history of literary language, language culture, sociolinguistics, lexicology and lexicography, structural linguistics, psycholinguistics, translation studies, philosophy of culture. The author evaluates the importance of O. O. Potebnia’s theory of literature for development linguosychological direction of language study, receptive-activity approach to stylistic resources of language. It was emphasized that in practical courses of the Ukrainian literary language and dictionaries of the 1920s and 1930s, the authors (L. A. Bulakhovskyi, Boris Tkachenko, Oleksa Synyavskyi, Olena Kurylo, Ivan Ohiyenko) substantiated the structural features of the Ukrainian literary language and recommended a stylistic assessment of the literary norm. The deepening of stylistic studies of the 1950s and 1970s (the academic course “Stylistics”) is classified as a combination of structural and functional-stylistic methods.

Such a mechanism provides a comprehensive analysis of the literary language in terms of its social functions and the implementation of stylistic norms. Stylistic and genre variation of texts in the 1990s and at the beginning of the twenty-first century actualized the problems of structural (differential) features of modern literary language and new trends in the development of the literary norm, influenced by stylistic mechanisms of the functioning of the Ukrainian language.

Key words: linguistic style, structural and functional-stylistic methods, integrative stylistics, theory of literature, style, thinking.
