Summary/Abstract: If we try to visualise the standard accepted by our self-image and environment, is the other image differ-ent from ours, the otherness abnormal? When appearance, attitude different from ours can be considered peculiar respectively ominous?According to the premise of this analysis all-time power rhetorics manipulates the tolerancy expressed in media of standard language against otherness. If power is intolerant against other minority`s manifestation, standard language will become intolerant too, and vice versa. In my essay different dates, periods` power manifestations are compared with media language existing at that time.
