A trend for manifesting various attitudes and feelings by means of derivatives of the nouns szacunek, uszanowanie, and poszanowanie (respect) is noticeable in modern Polish. However, their meanings and grammatical statuses are unclear. Therefore, this paper aims to characterise units such as szacun, szacuneczek, uszanowanko as well as poszan and poszanowanko in terms of grammar and semantics. They are formally analysed by describing their structure and their semantic interpretation is made
more » ... tation is made based on an overview of the material excerpted using Mocno PL, a corpus search engine, and Google, a web search engine. The analyses lead to the conclusion that the examined derivatives are stylistic synonyms of the noun szacunek in certain contexts only. In a majority of cases, they express approval, while in some contexts they function also as formulas opening or closing a statement or an utterance.
