Contamination Mechanisms of a Common Illocutionary Space Forming

Authors: Bredikhina Yu.I.

Abstract: The study analyzes the main contamination mechanisms of personal and institutional components in the process of forming a common illocutionary space of counter-communicators in the conditions of borderline communication of social work discourse. The basis for creating a common sphere of goal-setting is not only the intention of agents and clients to ensure the realization of the dominant goal, but also the presence of a conventionalizing “tertiary agent” (tertiariis agens), which contributes to the constant comparison of their own communicative actions with model samples. As part of the description of the strategies and tactics of consolidation, based on the discursive-modus analysis, not only the key speech-actual characteristics of the harmonization of communication are revealed, but also the interpretive potential of verbalizers of personal illocution elements that do not correspond to the situation of normalized semiosis. For the formation of the card index, the most representative, in terms of the constant change of the coding register, the borderline discourse of social work was chosen.
The result of the analysis is a list of the most effective speech acts of direct and hidden implementation of access to the control of discourse development vectors: commissives, promises, declaratives, metacommunicative phatic markers, as well as menasives with a modified illocution as causatives. The contamination of illocutionary spaces occurs on the basis of conditional institutionality with a priori acceptance of the criterion of “equalizing” agents and clients. Agent-client interaction is implemented in similar strategies and tactics for initiating key values; harmonization is achieved by reducing conflict potential during the transformation of the usual functional load. The regulatory potential of tertiariis agens, provided by the presence of conventionalization prototexts, contributes to the reduction of intimization entropy by creating a synergistic goal-setting vector and transforming the countercommunicator’s illocution.

Keywords: borderline discourse, institutional and personal components, collective illocution, speech act specificity, social work discourse, tertiariis agens, intimization entropy.
