The authoress draws readers' attention to the recurring interest of theoretical reflection in the category of time, caused by the transformations taking place in the contemporary culture. Present-day progress of civilization and fascination with speed, novelty and transformation caused that a contemporary man perceives time differently than in the past - losing the sense of continuity. The authoress is particularly fascinated with the time viewed from the stylistic perspective. She emphasises the fact that present-day stylistics is interested in the means of conceptualization of time in language and the texts of various cultures (and the perception, impression and valorisation of time). The stylistic description concentrates on the subjective experiencing of the passage of time. In the genre characterization of the utterance, time can also play the role of the typological criterion. The second important trend is the research on the time as a factor causing the transformations in the communicative sphere and the stylistic Polish language from the evolutionary perspective.
