The paper is a reply to M. Trybulec's polemics 'Incommensurability vs Linguistic Relativity' against A. Jedynak's views on linguistic relativism. Some points of Trybulec's paper are very unclear, others mistaken, however still others express quite interesting intuitions, worthy of further investigation. The latter have actually been put forth by A. Jedynak in her earlier book and paper, and can be expressed as follows: there are different levels of meaning and of translations; linguistic relativism should take this into account; the differences between languages most difficult to overcome are of pragmatical and not semantical nature.
