Any text world model has various storing and transmitting knowledge parameters that is why its interpretation provides a complex research construct being called knowledge format. It is revealed that the parameters of a text world model are determined by the intention of the author of a text and represent a set of realisations of nominative fields of literary concepts, the unity of which forms the conceptual sphere of a literary text. It is determined that a number of basic literary concepts acquire the status of cognitive textual dominants.
