Summary/Abstract: This text is a part of a wider linguistic research dedicated to the works of Alija Isaković, a writer who passed away almost twenty years ago, in March 1997. In light of the politeness theory, we will observe the selected scenes from his play To. In several illustrative scenes, we will only suggest the possibility of a more detailed linguistic analysis, especially from the perspective of linguistic disciplines, such as discourse analysis, or pragmatics. This paper is a modest homage to a man whose literary opus significantly enriched our culture.
