The article explains the relevance of the research that is determined by the interest of modern linguistics in the study of the author's composition of literary works, which differs from the usual forms of the printed text. The aim of the research is to study the lexical and grammatical features of hypertext by examining the autobiographical novel “My Body" by Shelley Jackson. The material for the research is the hypertext of the autobiographical novel “My Body” by Shelley Jackson, which represents a new electronic form of the novel and is considered to be a lexicographic hypertext. When considering hypertext as a special branching structure of written communication, the definition of "hypertext" is suggested, the main types of hyperlinks presented in the novel under study are considered and illustrated. The analysis of the structure of the hypertext links presentation based on the novel under consideration showed that there are four types of relations between determinative and determinant in external syntagmas: attributive, objective, relational and predicative ones. Syntagmas in hyperlinks are studied according to the types of word combinations: nuclear and non-nuclear word combinations. Hyperlinks in the form of sentences (sentences and quasi-sentences) can also be found in the hypertext. The article analyses lexical and grammatical features of fictional e-hypertext by examining the novel “My Body" by Shelley Jackson. It has been found that relations between language units of different levels within the framework of the hypertext novel are systemic in nature. By using hyperlinks, the author helps the reader generate new ideas, preserving coherence of a literary work.
