Abstract. The article describes the results of the analysis of the institutional type of discourse – the administrative discourse – in terms of its typology. The study highlights four types of administrative discourse with a descending status vector. The first part of the article is a consideration of the discourse from the perspective of its relatedness to the institutional type, descending and ascending forms of communication, defining its specific features. The essential features of the administrative discourse are defined as follows: the protocoling, the primacy of law in the assessment, the functionality of the communication nature. In the second part of the work in accordance with the field principle the types of administrative discourse are selected and described: consultative, regulatory, evaluative and controlling, which is possible due to the verbalization of speech genres groups united by similar features. The given types of discourse have several common characteristics: a descending status vector of the sender, documenting, and the legitimacy of communication. Accordingly, 4 groups of speech genres were considered: polylogue genres of consultative discourse type, suggesting a collective speech activity; genres- motives for regulatory type, carrying out the regulatory function; assessment genres for the evaluative type of discourse with the aim of public rendering of the positive or negative evaluation; genres typical for controlling administrative discourse in order to monitor all of the above communications.

Key words: institutional discourse, administrative discourse, speech genre, consultative discourse, regulatory discourse, evaluative discourse, controlling discourse.
