The article presents the description of Polish interjections coming from two sources: from the teenage slang and the religious style. They provide contemprary Polish with interjections in the function of welcoming and/or saying goodbye, and speach limitators, as well as interjections in the function of maintaining communictive interaction (e. g. toasts) or breaking it. Among the class of interjections, there is a set of supporting the phatic function word units whose rank in the contemporary culture seems to be growing. The set is not extensive but often used.
