Using the example of the dialects spoken by Polish highlanders and used in the south of the Malopolska region, the article presents an extensive account of the semantic, pragmatic and syntactic features of the dialectal particle 'ta'. The lexical unit in question plays an important role in expression of politeness in Polish dialects. It weakens the pragmatic (illocutionary) force of the utterance and the straightforwardness of the expression by creating a distance and helping to avoid the responsibility for one's utterances.
