Summary/Abstract: The word refugees was chosen the word of the year 2015 in many European countries(in Poland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, France and Russia). This word as wellas other candidates were at that time – in the truest sense of the word – on everyone’slips. They were literally hitting the headlines. No surprise. Millions of people, mainlyfrom the Middle East and North Africa, who wanted to be let in, were knocking at thegates of Europe. In the media discourse this phenomenon was called ‘crisis’ (therefugee crisis, the migration crisis). This article aims to analyse the language profilingof the phenomenon itself and the people it referred to both in Polish and German press,i.e. the refugees, at the beginning of the crisis, that is in the summer of 2015.
