This paper aims at sketching a theoretical framework permitting a more satisfactory approach to the controversial notion of loose, or nonrestrictive, apposition in Polish. The solutions which it proposes have been arrived at on the basis of the corpus from the Polish edition of Newsweek magazine. The appositive constructions have been characterized by the criteria for apposition usually assumed in the previous studies on apposition.
