Summary: The research aims to identify and characterize the origins of the notion of “gender”, to make a general description of “gender”, to characterize gender studies in linguistics, to trace and to analyze the gender aspect of the use of address in English. The object of research is gender aspect of the use of address in English. Address-regulations are evaluative in nature and regulate the relationship between interlocutors in accordance with the speech, etiquette standards and norms common in a particular society. The address without syntactic connections with other words in the sentence has a special intonation and a special communicative purpose – to control the behavior of the recipient. An address creates a transition between identifying and predicative nominations, objective semantics to subjective semantics. Depending
on the gender characteristics of the participants of communication, the situation of communication and the intention of the addressee in the messages are dominated by elements of encouraging, contact, meta communicative or evaluativemodal speech actions. When choosing an address in a particular speech act, the characteristics of the addressee are differentiated at the basic level of categorization: acquaintance-stranger, man-woman, senior-junior-equal, socially higher-lower-equal, and so on. In the etiquette of business communication, this differentiation usually has clear linguistic equivalents. Gender features of the use of address in English include address-nominations proper names, nicknames; official circulating constructions related to generally accepted norms in society; treatment without mentioning the addressee; terms of kinship in the literal and figurative sense; age, sex; profession; status and role haracteristics;
evaluative address of personality characteristics; substantivized adjectives; metaphorical.
