The authoress presents some remarks on adaptive structure of spoken complaint. The analyses demonstrate the contamination of complaint and narrative structure. In the analyzed spoken texts a narrative seems to be structurally 'stronger' genre because of its structural dominant: narrative scheme, consisting of few elements arranged in turn (Abstract, Orientation, Evaluation, Result and Coda). However, spoken complaint has also a strong dominant which is semantic dominant - negation showing speaker's attitude to events of his life. The negation exists on text surface or in a deep semantic structure of words. Analyses show that most complaint elements are located in Orientation and Coda which often contain speaker's opinion about reported events. The opinion in everyday spoken narratives may be positive or negative, and sometimes it can be even humoristic, but in spoken complaint this final opinion is always negative.
