The article gives a concise review of business communication as a system of mechanisms and means of influence on the recipient. The article notes that efficiency of communication depends, on the one hand, on adequate planning of speech activity, on the other hand – on the successful decoding process in the recipient’s mind. The role of verbs of communication in such interaction is under analysis. The author makes special emphasis on this lexico-semantic group functional potential and highlights the sense augmentation they bring into the general sense system of discourse. Finally, the author comes to the
conclusion that the use of the verbs in question plays an important role in enhancing business discourse rhetoric effectiveness, as well as in formation of speech system properties.
