The present paper offers a survey of prevailing lines of research on linguistic argumentation, which is a fundamental part of a logical communication structure of any sense bearing text. The paper explores the character and structure of linguistic argumentation with regards to communication and pragmatic aspects. It also substantiates a broad understanding of argumentation as an indispensable element for the universal communication process, which lies behind any piece of information to be transferred further on in the context of the discourse activity. Unlike most scholars who, while interpreting argumentation, focus on the logical (evidentiary) aspect of this phenomenon, the authors of the paper consider and prove argumentation to be a pragmatic framework to build any extended language construct characterized by relatively accomplished meaningfulness, i.e. conveying a certain informative value. Ranged and classified views on the nature of argumentation make it possible to draw a line between a broad and narrow approaches to its interpretation. Argumentation in a broad sense is a communication process, which goes along with any informatively significant language construct and serves as a universal technique to transfer information through the discourse act. Among distinct manifestations of inherent speech argumentation, we find the following speech constituents – narrative, explanation, confirmation, illustration, classification, persuasion and etc. Argumentation in a narrow sense is identical to proving based on arguments.
