Summary/Abstract: The paper presents the characteristics of the verbs with the prefix za- that describe the initial phase of actions in contemporary Polish. There is no agreement among linguists as to the characteristics of the initial verbs. The author presents her own classification of the initial verbs with the prefix za- in Polish and tries to describe the relations between the lexical semantics of the initial verbs and the context. Each class is illustrated by examples from Polish.
