The text is a reflection on the differences between the adverbs class and the one of particles. It is based on Jadwiga Wajszczuk's innovative meta-text interpretation. The analysis of quantifying adverbial units such as 'zawsze' (always), 'nigdy' (never), 'na ogol' (usually), 'przewaznie' (generally), 'zazwyczaj' (normally), 'zwykle' (as a rule), 'czasem' (sometimes), 'od czasu do czasu' (from time to time), frequency adverbs like 'czesto' (often), 'rzadko' (seldom), 'z rzadka' (rarely) and duration adverbs 'stale' (constantly), 'ciagle' (continuously), 'wciaz' (all the time), 'nadal' (still), is based on examination of topic structure of expressions and the above mentioned units. It leads to the assumption that their current classification needs verification. According to detailed hypotheses, the units 'przewaznie', 'na ogol', 'zazwyczaj', 'zwykle' and 'z reguly' belong to the class of particles whereas units 'stale', 'ciagle', 'wciaz', 'nadal' as well as 'czesto', 'rzadko', 'z rzadka', 'czasem', 'od czasu do czasu', 'niekiedy', although they hale some non-adverbial features (it is about a possibility to relate them to an attributive verb), are closer by their function to adverbs than to particles.
