The article concerns the issue of intensification in Polish and Slovak reviews of Pavol Rankov’s prose. The review, as a form accompanying the main text, is treated as paratext. The linguistic category of intensification can be expressed in the text by the variety of linguistic means: derivational, morphological, lexical, and stylistic. These structures, with the collateral “intensifiers”, were cited and analysed in this study.
