Summary/Abstract: The paper focuses on the way dialect is perceived and studied in the present socio-economic conditions as well as civilization, cultural and moral conditions. The author presents hitherto achievements of dialectology and points to new directions and methods which enrich and expand its scope. She highlights interdisciplinary character of present-day dialectology and related to that adopting methods of other disciplines, in particular sociolinguistics and ethnolinguistics. New challenges facing dialectology concern interpretation of linguistic changes taking place in the present village, together with fusing the past and the present; moreover including the language in the cultural, social and civilization context, with dialects which not only document the passing age, but are lasting components of national heritage.
