Abstract: The goal of this research is to analyse the differences of adjective usage in spoken language registers. Eleven official and familiar conversations have been analysed. The conversations were divided into six register groups according to lexical, morphological, and syntactical features of the conversations. First of all, this work describes the terms of spoken language variety. The term of register was chosen in this research. Following Lithuanian and foreign linguists we decided that this is the most presentable term for the naming of various spoken language forms. The methodology of corpus linguistics was applied in the research. The representative corpus of spoken language was created for lexical, morphological, and syntactical analysis. The statistical information was found using the CHILDES program. Lexical differences of adjectives of different spoken language registers were described in the research. Moreover, a new classification of lexical adjective groups was offered. Morphosyntactic features of adjective usage were described and compared in different spoken language registers. Statistical results were compared to the results of adjective usage analysis in functional styles of written language and in colloquial speech. The analysis has shown that there are a lot of lexical, morphological, and syntactical adjective-use differences (lexical diversity, lexical semantic groups, distribution of grammatical categories, function of adjective in utterances) between official and familiar registers of spoken language. Official registers are similar to scientific and objective functional styles of written language, while familiar registers are similar to fictional functional style
