Abstract:The existence of a journalistic functional style is still a controversy amongst the theorists of the Romanian language. Still many of them identify certain features that lead to the conclusion that such a concept has a reflection in the reality of the mass-media. Gheorghe Bolocan found 70.000 terms used in the language of the Romanian press and a preponderance of the noun; Paula Diaconescu talks about a composite linguistic structure and linguistic stereotypes; Al. Andriescu reveals a preference for neologisms and a certain redundancy in using words from the same semantic field, a concision in the use of language and some unique features given by the extra linguistic (communicational) context. The theorists agree on some individual features of the language of the press: clarity, concision, credibility.
The Romanian press of the XIX century is mainly a press of opinion and a magazine type of press, but it does not completely lack the features I have mentioned above. By monitoring the Romanian religious press from this period of time, I have revealed features and elements that lead to the conclusion that the Church press had some incipient means of communicating the message specific to the journalistic style, against its declared mission and the specialized theological language.
