Language Mechanisms to Express Comissive Speech Acts in English

Cover Page


The article is an insight into linguistic features of performatives proceding from the analyses of Russian and English comissive speech acts. Language is understood as a means of a peculiar sort of actions carried out in the very process of pronouncing an utterance explicating a speech act. An analysis of key parameters of pragmatic communicative context is provided. These are essentials to provide a syncretic verbal act. Elements of comparative analysis are included.
