The article focuses mainly on the repertoire of linguistic devices related to the carnival, they include elements related to the identity change and a grotesque concept of the human body. Insults, curses and combination of components belonging to various style variations are also analysed from the same angle. The purpose of this article is the presentation of carnivalisation symptoms in the Boris Akunin’s criminal trilogy about the adventures of the nun Pelagia as well as describing specificity of translation techniques applied in translating the trilogy into Polish.
