The article focuses on the analysis of the main functions of abbreviations in modern English texts. It indicates that different types of abbreviations (syllabics, compound-syllabics, initials) serve their specific functions, such as: nominative, style marking, text-forming. Some cognitive and discoursive peculiarities of the mentioned above phenomenon are presented in the paper. The necessity to investigate this problem within the frame of the cognitive-discourse approach to the language is emphasized.
