The article describes sentences with the word 'zamiast'. In Polish this unit is connected with an infinitive or a noun, e.g. 'Koledzy wrzeszczeli na mnie zamiast zaczekac na dworcu' and 'Maria interesuje sie geografia zamiast matematyka'. It is interesting that 'zamiast' constitutes two types of structures. Firstly, 'zamiast' is the part of an exocentric structure like 'Wyszedl, zamiast zostac' or 'Jan kupil traktor zamiast samochodu'. In these sentences 'zamiast' accommodates a verb infinitive or a genitive of a noun. Secondly, it is possible to distinguish a coordinate construction with the 'zamiast' conjunction e.g. 'Zamiast sie gniewac, powinna pani mi podziekowac' or 'Maria interesuje sie geografia zamiast matematyka'. In these sentences the whole coordinate construction, either the noun group or the infinitive one, usually depends on the finite form.
