Abstract. The author considers G. Leech's politeness principle use in English informal dialogue. This principle is understood as the specific strategy of speech behavior the purpose of which is the prevention of conflict situations. The violations of politeness postulates may be connected with horizontal and vertical relations between communicants and also with the contradictoriness of the maxims themselves.
Key words and phrases: разговорный диалог, принцип вежливости Дж. Лича, речевое поведение, informal dialogue, G. Leech's politeness principle, speech behavior.
