Summary/Abstract: The current article presents an attempt to provide the definition of advertising slogan as no uniform definition of the slogan exists in scientific literature. The article also gives the definition and analysis of language of advertising from linguistic point of view and specifies linguistic means used in advertising texts. The paper describes the use and purpose of linguistic devices in print advertising. The body of 100 English advertising slogans chosen for the analysis on the random basis were divided into three groups with the focus on the language and rhetorical devices used in them. The most and least often used figurative language, sound techniques and rhetorical devices were identified.
