Abstract. The article deals with the peculiarities of the use of falling tones in the non-emotional part of the English-language political debates, which have a rather complicated nomenclature. Falling tones are traditionally considered as prosodically unmarked and basically express the objective modality of the completion of a thought. However, the author comes to the conclusion that allotones of falling tones are used by speakers in the aspect of pragmatic function, that is, they realize the subjective modality of persuasion.
