The proposed research is focused on highlighting the issues of functional sentence perspective actualization and implementation in Early Modern English complex complementary sentence as a distributional field of immediately relevant context in terms of retrievable/irretrievable information of the communication considering context dependence/independence of the elements as to the escalation of communicative dynamic function of the speaker’s volition in the utterance. Such sentence elements as theme, theme proper, rheme, rheme proper in the function of irretrievable or new and unknown for the addresser information as well as with the function of retrievable or implemented into the context information have been distinguished. Thematic and rhematic constituents of a complex sentence have been defined to function as the actualizers of irretrievable and retrievable information both in the main or matrix and in the additional finite, infinitive complementary clauses with different level of communicative dynamism escalation or developmnet that is in its highest or the lowest degrees. It has been determined that the carriers of irretrievable information provide the highest degree of communicative dynamism of a coherent sentence structure in the final location whereas in the initial position they receive the lowest degree of communicative dynamism of the utterance volitional direction. Carriers of irretrievable information can obtain the function of communicative dynamism highest degree due to the semantics of matrix volitional verbs with purposefulness and accentuation of the main action on the addressee. Thematic and rhematic elements of a complex complementary sentence have been also delineated as context dependent and context independent components which express the relevant level of communicative dynamic volitional function. Complementary finite, infinitive sentences functioning as dependent or independent clauses in the development or escalation of the holistic sentence structure communicative perspective as the realization of the speaker will has been characterized. The contextual dependence of theme/rheme or those constituents/referents that refer to the previous context of a complex sentence causes the contextual dependence of a particular complement clause. The contextual independence of thematic and rhematic elements in the subordinate sentence is the factor influencing the context independent functional perspective and communicative orientation of the latter.
