An approach to the stylistics of transformed or functionally changed forms of fairy tales, intended to show which functionally and linguistically-stylistically relevant categories are involved in these changes. G. takes the sender-text-receiver distinction as basic. The cases considered are: embedding of the fairy tale; reformulation and parody; the use of elements of fairy tales in different contexts such as advertising and journalism; the presentation of a fairy tale as a true story.
