The article deals with the problem of classification of language functions. The author considers six parameters of verbal activity: world, man, interaction, discourse, convention and linguistic situation, which are treated as criteria of the language functions. He considers also two aspects of language functioning: explicate and procedural, which enables the distinction of twelve language functions: nomination, magic, index (presentation), expression, social (sociolectal) function, pragmatic function, stylistic function, ethological (heuristic) function, cognitive function, creative function, statutory function and determination (initiation).
