Summary/Abstract: The article aims at discussing the types and features of Polish “pseudo-anglicisms” against the theoretical background provided by researchers studying the English linguistic influence on other European languages in which pseudo-anglicisms are a common phenomenon and have been well researched. Polish studies on pseudo-loans carried out so far mention just one type of pseudo-anglicisms, i.e. those that are derived in the process of ellipsis. Research material excerpted from the language of young speakers of Polish allows for the exemplification of all the types of pseudo-anglicisms discussed.
