Abstract: This article examines culture-specific differences in the ways representatives of American and Ukrainian societies, native speakers of their respective languages, use the language when they perform the speech act of wish. The communication behavior of both groups of respondents is analyzed within the categories of models of their respective cultures, which are provided in this paper. The research is based on empirical data collected with the help of a questionnaire which was analyzed on two levels, situational and lexico-syntactic.
