The object of description in this paper are derivatives with formative '-encja'. Observation of vocabulary of modern Polish leads to conclusion that formative '-encja' is used for creating derivatives, motivated by verbs and nouns. Formations motivated by nouns are characterized by expressiveness. The analysis led the autoress to the conclusion that in described formations, like for example 'czapencja', 'glowencja', 'lalencja', a pragmatic function of the word-formation is manifesting.
