    Deterministic substitution of languages means substituting the same word (from a given language) for all occurrences of a symbol. For an arbitrary family $K$ of languages the notion of deterministic $K$-iteration grammar is introduced, which is essentially the iteration of a finite number of deterministic substitutions of languages from $K$. The families of languages generated by these grammars are investigated.
