Abstract

The article deals with one of the elements of the investigator’s speech behavior - didacticism during the interrogation of suspected persons. This behavior of the investigator is aimed at the implementation of the educational function in his professional activities. The analysis of the interrogations in eight novels by Russian authors and eight novels by English authors revealed the most frequent language markers of educational intentions, characterizing the main illocutions of the investigators' speech behavior, related to obtaining evidence from the defendant. The object of the study was the slots of the statements of investigators and a detective story with an educational illocution orientation. A statistical analysis of the results was carried out in order to determine the frequency of use of certain language means in the implementation of the educational function in the work of investigators and detectives. The article also provides a comparative analysis of the characteristics of markers of educational intentions in Russian and English linguocultural community, as well as the dominant speech behavior of Russian and English investigators, aimed at their pedagogical impact on the person under investigation.
