The morphological structure of a word and its interactive function
The author, taking the assumptions of communicative grammar, shows the relationship of the morphological structure of a word and its persuasive function. Habrajska studies many examples of derivatives, which introduce an emotive and evaluative element to speech. In addition to affixes of native origin, the article presents popular prefixes in contemporary Polish as super-, arcy-, ekstra- that bring high positive evaluation. The analysis presented in the article also refers to the conditional and imperative forms which can introduce to the utterance various speech acts, such as a request (odwiedzilibyście babcię — Would you visit grandmother), and different speech acts persuading to act, or even wishes (śpij spokojnie, bądź zdrów — sleep well, be in good health).
