Abstract: An alternative proof of the existence of a Besicovitch function (i.e. a continuous function which has nowhere a unilateral derivative) is presented. The method consists in showing the residuality of Besicovitch functions in special subspaces of the Banach space of all continuous functions on $ [0,1]$ and yields Besicovitch functions with additional properties of Morse or Hölder type. A way how to obtain functions with a similar behavior on normed linear spaces is briefly mentioned.
