Abstract: The objective of the present article was to examine culture-specific differences in the way representatives of American and Ukrainian societies, native speakers of their respective languages, use the language when they perform the speech act of complaint. The communication behavior of both groups of respondents is analyzed within the models of their respective cultures, which are also presented in the article. The research is based on empirical data collected with the help of a questionnaire. The obtained findings confirmed the relationship between the lexico-syntactic realization of the speech act of complaint and the respondents' national cultures.
