Keywords:style of official documents, specification, specifying construction, structural model
AbstractThe paper reveals structural characteristics of the category of specification in the modern English language as exemplified in the functional style of official documents. The analysis is carried out according to such criteria as the number of constituents, components position, components juxtaposition, and linguistic reference. Structural models common for the functional style of official documents are singled out and analyzed, basic and parallel being the main ones. The research concludes that avoidance of creating extra syntactic bonds due to lexico-grammatical peculiarities of the style is characteristic of the category of specification in the functional style of official documents.
