Summary/Abstract: Syntactic (linear) constructions of Dizdar’s expression (congruency and government) basically respect normative dictates, yet discovering possibilities of entirely distinctive entries. The result of combination of isoformic and alloformic constructions is a recognisable rhythm creating syntax which in conjunction with idiomatic versification, produces visual effects (crossness and roundness) thus confirming, with this level as well, verified motivation of this poetry generating from culturological speciphicums of the middle Bosnian and Herzegovinian areal (tombstones). The choice of lexis, especially its various levels of archaisation – phonological, morphological and lexical, plays an important role in the function of the expressivity of utterance. Archaisation adds the idea of timeness to the linear geometry of space ( length – width), in two components: horizontal (embracing the present) and vertical (embracing the relation present – future), which also emphasizes crossness as one of the basic principles of this poetry. Activating mental potencial of Dizdar’s subject – the sign reader, the time also exists as a memory which embeding itself into the contemporaneity, suggests the concept of round duration. Thus the text, beheld as a fact of space, transgresses from flatness to voluminosity of multidimensional structure, and measured by viewpoint potential, from visuality to conception.
