Abstract. The subject of the article is human verbal activity in the aspect of interaction between consciousness and language, thinking and speech. The research topic is the cogitative basis of speech-imitation and speech perception. The work is aimed at revealing and explaining the basic communicative pragmatic factors, regulating the choice of verbal means and speech contructions in spoken or written communication.
Materials and methods. The analysis emphasizes that the modern linguistic methodology should take into account the complex character of speech acts and not to exclude it from the speaker’s field of view – both as native speaker and a communicator. The traditional instrumental paradigm of language in linguistics usually reduces verbality to the semiotic function. The communicative-pragmatic approach to language, on the contrary, reveals symbolic character in language and speech units, but not informativity, as well as stimulation and a function of self-expression of a speaker. Besides, the cogitological concept, developed by the author, originates from the ideas of integration of language and consciousness, speech and thinking, that occurs in the processes of objectivation (formantization and semantization) retrospective cogitative notions and representation (nomination and expression) of topical cogitative notions. Verbal units are considered by the author as a unity of nominative and representative functions, as well as in the perspective of the expression function as a result of language semantics overlapping cogitative conceptualcontent- related complextа in the context of speech activity.
Results. The article demonstrates the character of verbal-conceptual correlation, regulating the process of communication. Communication itself is considered as manipulation of verbal-conceptual structures or as their correlation according to the principle of assimilation and dissimilation, for which the coordinative human consciousness of a speaker is responsible.
Conclusions. The propositions, suggested in the article, may be used for further development of linguistic-cognitive theory. Practical conclusions and recommendations should be taken into account at compilation of encyclopedic and theme terminological dictionary.
