Summary/Abstract: Studies into fiction and its linguistic specifies are frequently done from the perspective ofcomprehension. In this study comprehension means finding and construing senses. Thereforethe entire text is the area for building up senses. The sense of the text is explained asa configuration of ties and relationships among various elements in a situation emerging asa result of some activity or communication at the moment when that situation is being createdor recreated by a person who adequately understands the text.In the article the figurative sense of the prose by Boris Pasternak and the semantic diversityof the language in the prose by Henry James and the comedy by William Shakespeare areshown. In prose semantic vagueness and polysemantic ambiguity are connected. The processof understanding the texts of implied sense is described.A complementary principle in the system of language tunes down and brings togetherthe multicoloured canvas of the text. The naturalistic meticulousness is contrasted to theoverall whole. Determination arouses the reader’s curiosity and encourages him to look forthe inexplicitly expressed sense of the text.Today, given the available findings of extensive scholarly research, it is imperative toprobe into the issues surrounding sense from new offbeat angles and vantage points.
