The essence of the paper is to observe to what extent first grade pupils pay attention to the word aesthetics. The author of this paper, who was interested in the answer to the above question, conducted research among 20 pupils of the first grade of a primary school in Gdańsk. The research took place on 15 December 2008 in one of the classrooms. Each of the pupils was subjected to the research individually by receiving the same set of questions.
The first grade pupils managed to answer the asked questions surprisingly well. They paid attention to multiple significant factors which influence the aesthetics of the utterance, including the emotional factor, which is the source of numerous unaesthetic utterances.
