Abstract. The focus is on the study of the antecedent-anaphoric complex (AAC) as a multipartite method of explicating judgments about the purpose. By way of a continuous sampling procedure, text fragments from verbal shorthand of interviews with political leaders were identified. Having used the methods of introspection, observation and comparison, linguistic modeling and transformation, the author outlined the structural features of AAC with the purpose semantics mainly represented via the proposition-nominal correlation between the initial unit and its referential substitute. Specifics of semantic relations between antecedent and substitute is described; cognitive, linguistic, pragmatic, communicative factors that determine the choice of a complex anaphora as the most optimal model for explicating judgments in an argumentative text type are considered among other prototypical ways of purpose semantics setting. The functions of reference means are analyzed by establishing left-side relationships with the secondary naming elimination of the propositional content within the initial component, right-side relationships in the antecedent-anaphoric complex, as well as in discourse succession. Functional specificity of the models under study is revealed through their cohesion with some subsequent discursive units or intervention of a text unit with the purpose semantics in another antecedent-anaphoric complex structure.

Key words: reference, secondary naming, anaphora, antecedent-anaphoric complex, antecedent, substitute, reference means.
