Communicative-Pragmatic Organization of Scientific Technical Text

Cover Page

Cite item


Scientific texts constitute different speech entities from the perspective of communicative and pragmatic structures. These structures are formed by text components such as communicative and pragmatic components and pragmatic settings. Topics, descriptions of research results, findings and conclusions are outlined as communicative-pragmatic blocks. The typical means of expressing communicative pragmatic blocks are certain clichéd constructions that are characterized by special speech means in the speech text plane. The scientific text also includes such pragmatic setups as prognostic, compensating, evaluative, non-verbal means of exposure which materialize in specific speech means on the textual plane, the so-called pragmatic actualizers, understood as a system of multi-level linguistic units incorporated on the basis of their impact functions. All this allows us to consider the communicative-pragmatic structure of scientific texts as multi-dimensional and comprehensive.
