Theories in the field of intertextuality, have been providing a new understanding of the text, which conveys that, that no text is self-sufficient, and each text at the same time will be an intertextual concept of previous texts and next texts. With the expansion of the concept, text (linguistic signs) is not the only applicable text and interpretable phenomenon but also can be considered as text. Therefore every phenomenon of the text can be read by using methods of intertextuality.
