Abstract. The article examines the functional-semantic peculiarities of relative subordinate sentences with a conjunctive link in the modern English language. Two main functional-semantic types of conjunctive subordinates are described: informational and emotional-evaluative.

Key words and phrases: функциональная семантика, грамматический статус, присоединительные придаточные, синтаксическая связь, дискурс, functional semantics, grammatical status, conjunctive subordinates, syntactic relation, discourse.
