The Classification of Speech Genres of Institutional Discourse

Ponomarenko Elena Alikovna, V.I. Vernadsky Crimean Federal university

The article is devoted to classification problem of speech genres. The research urgency is caused by the lack of a common typology of speech genres. It is noted that the classification of speech genres, the basis for which was the concept of institutionality, includes four groups namely: authentic, complementary, peripheral and external. In the proportional ratio range of authentic genres does not exceed variety of complementary and peripheral genres. Such a classification can claim universal character and is applicable to any of the varieties of institutional discourse (juristic, military, pedagogical, political etc.).
