It was shown that the perception and understanding of communicative behavior of people from English-speaking countries © Ivashkevych Ernest in a great degree was actualized through the image. The latter is not just the result of the person's imagination, but a visual generalization that accompanies the verbal explication of the man's thoughts through the Englishmen / women pointing gestures. If the pointing gesture is separated from the whole paradigm of perception as a certain object of interest from the environment, especially situational, then the separation, for example, is a part of this object in relations to a specially selected or constructed space indicates the supra-situational attitude of the recipient to a certain object and the creation of the most stable way of existence of the object itself, in addition to its connections with the pointing gesture. Thus, the pointing gesture is transformed into a paradigm of conditional space, further transformations of which facilitates the emergence of the «pointing field» in the system of the perception and understanding of communicative behavior of people from English-speaking countries. Conclusions. The actualization of communicative behavior of people from English-speaking countries by recipients takes place in a conditional space close to a real life. Communicative behavior of people from English-speaking countries contributes to the fact that speech activity will be «grouped» around the image and creative practices. Conditionally, space becomes a paradigm of the most significant and valuable content, which initially embodied a certain image, specially created by the addressee. In other words, the selection of this speech image became the basis for the construction of the individual model of the world by recipients. Ritualized real actions, which contain the «products» of all kinds of creative practices in their structure, represent a symbolic form of the primary image, which is created by recipients from the very beginning of the actualization of communicative behavior of people from English-speaking countries. Key words: communicative behavior, people from English-speaking countries, the image, visual generalization, construction of the individual model of the world. Ключевые слова: коммуникативное поведение, люди из англоязычных стран, образ, визуальное обобщение, индивидуальная модель мира.
