Summary/Abstract: The following article concerns vocabulary in testaments from the Podhale region which were published by Kazimierz Dobrowolski in „Włościańskie rozporządzenie ostatniej woli na Podhalu w XVII i XVIII w.” (Kraków 1933). How it can be known, this type of texts is an important source for historical linguistic because they record the regional and colloquial lexis. We can see the same situation in testaments.
