The article focuses on studying male and female speech behaviour in two national variants of English – British and American – and research in realizing the rich potential of meanings developing in modern English dialogue discourse. The analysis is not only based on functional and pragmatic approach to language study but also centers on modern trends in cognitive linguistics. The latest achievements of this area of linguistics are determined by the fact that appearance of various functional meanings of tags in dialogue discourse is highly dependent on sociocultural, cognitive, gender, psychological and a number of other factors.
