Summary/Abstract: The research is an attempt to reformulate the category paratext. The empirical material is taken not only from the speech text (traditionally connected with the paratext), but from media, aesthetics, religious, sports and other discourses. The enlargement of the phenomenon range as well as the enlargement of the theoretical base (textlinguistic and sociological analyses of the discourse and the formulations of prototype theory, developed by cognitive psychology), give an opportunity for a new rationalization of the concept paratext as a text structure, functioning in discourse order of communicative practices that obligatorily accompany texts, circulating in public in order to secure their entry in the social activities, which caused the text and are realized through it.
