Abstract. The article considers the features of using rising tones in a non-emotional part of the English-language political debates. Rising tones have a rather complex modality; in the objective part of it they, basically, express the idea of an unfinished statement, the continuation of a thought. However, the author comes to the conclusion that allotones of rising tones are used by speakers in the aspect of realizing the pragmatic function of the political discourse.
