The article deals with the description of interrogative and exclamatory sentences, parcellated constructions, syntactic repetitions, parentheses, elliptical and nominative sentences, the emphatic version of the actual division of the sentence and the role of punctuation in English advertisements. The analysis of the means of expressive syntax in advertisements for the recipients of different ages is of particular interest from the point of view of peculiarities of creating advertisements for different target groups.
