Summary/Abstract: In this article the question of discourse analysis is discussed. Since the eighties of 20th century, the discipline of Critical Discourse Analysis occupies a lot of linguistic scholarship (notably in the UK, the Netherlands, US, Germany). As it is well known, this type of an approach, opens linguistics towards to a new interdisciplinary research in which, apart from linguistic structures themselves, many other communicative circumstances are also taken into consideration such as: social actors, knowledge, social and political relations, and many others. Thus, discourse makes possible to see any language as a tool to in-depth research of society and culture. This article aims at continuing a discussion on this issue which takes place in Polish linguistic environment recently.
