Abstract. The article analyzes the specificity of expressing disagreement from the viewpoint of the gender aspect by the example of Michigan Corpus of Academic Spoken English (MICASE). The author examines a communicative situation, in which the teacher corrects the student’s mistake or disagrees with his opinion. The paper describes the basic means to explicate disagreement and pragmatic linguistic means to soften the categoricity of a statement in English scientific discourse. The analysis identified insignificant gender differences that testify for the necessity of the further verification of the stereotypes of male and female speech behaviour.
