Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is an analysis of verbs expressing negative attitude toward work in different varieties of the Polish and Russian languages. This study is based on a lexicographic material. The analyzed units are the results of the interpretative activity of man and reflect deviations from commonly accepted social norms. They denote actions where the subject is idle, wandering around, lives off others or is putting off work. The analysis of the gathered material shows that similar behaviors typical of a lazy person have been well established in the linguistic awareness of Poles and Russians.
