The subject of this study is the thorough examination of the Subjectivity through major literary and linguistic events. The linguistic representations used in expressions containing subjectivity will be determined and interpreted with a sociolinguistic point of view. The corpus as a compilation to be used in the study is the novel of Emile Zola, the famous classic writer of the world, entitled "Claude's Confessions" (1865). We will take all of this work into consideration when we examine it. Once we have read the text deeply with a visual eye, we plan to make up to 50 words of choice for the formation of the sample. We will try to examine the manuscript as a literary style in the frame over the utterances we choose. Although we cannot examine only sociological point of view, we will have to take a philosophical approach when considering the depth of expression and expression in the text. Therefore, this study can be regarded as a case study which is studied from a Language – Literature – Sociology window through a multidisciplinary approach through a novel. As for the theoretical framework, we will benefit from contemporary Western linguistic theories starting from the linguist Saussure, founder of General Linguistics. The focal point of these theories is the "Enunciation" (Speech Act), which is the basic parameter of linguistics which takes into account the textual and non-linguistic environment of language construction. This theory is a new approach that examines not just simple sentences, but some utterances and discourses. In this approach, the examination of the discourse of the individual at a certain time/space and condition becomes important. The basis of the analysis of discourse will be linguistic structuralism based on context and corpus. We will analyze the messages (the author wants to give to the reader/collectors) while studying the deep structure of the lingual surface structure in sociological and philosophical conclusions. Apart from this, the closed discourses in the text will be evaluated in the context of the deep structure. In this context, the main purpose of this research is to explain the signs of subjectivity with a multidisciplinary pragmatic approach. Thus, we will elaborate on the concrete linguistic signs in the different structures that the author receives from the society in the process of examining the messages in the roman.
