Summary/Abstract: The article presents an example of ethnic discourse analysis of the press published in Winnipeg (Canada) between 1896 and 1919. The presented research strategy is based on qualitative analysis of English, German, and Polish newspapers. The perspective of discourse analysis offers some possibilities to conduct research on creating the definition of ethnic identity on the pages of ethnic newspapers by the symbolic elite, changes within one ethnic group as well as discourse struggle for social meaning between competing groups. The sociological perspective of discourse analysis focuses particularly on social inequalities and on ideologies which legitimate such inequalities.
