Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the issue of the features of Polish parliamentarians’ utterances during the sessions of the Sejm. The authors refer to the studies and observations of leading contemporary researchers of political discourse and public communication. As it turns out, the utterances presented on the basis of transcripts from parliamentary sessions and descriptions of the behaviour of the parliamentarians are in contradiction not only to the rules governing the meeting room, but even to the generally accepted rules of social coexistence. The article discusses the linguistic phenomena of this particular type of discourse, determining on their basis the inter-party and even interpersonal relations holding in the Sejm of the Republic of Poland.
