Summary/Abstract: "The following work has primarily a didactic and popularizing character, although descriptions of different linguistic phenomena do not lack precision typical of strictly scholarly works; after all, meticulousness is a hallmark of philology. Also, I do not avoid the entirely new perspectives as far as the etymology or formal-semantic development of some of the analyzed lexemes is concerned. I direct this book at both the foreign students of Polish and the Polish people sensitive to the beauty of their mother tongue – students of Polish philology and other humanities as well as mere enthusiasts of the Polish language. Since this study is addressed to a wide range of Readers, I decided not to use the methodological framework required of an academic text except for the bibliography of major publications (mainly dictionaries) used in the preparation of particular entries, which I provide at the end of the book." (from the “Introduction”)
