Summary/Abstract: This paper is an attempt at describing the sematic field CUDZOŁOŻNICA (ADULTERESS). The basis for the excerption was the lexicographic material included in Słownik języka polskiego (Dictionary of Polish) edited by Jan Karłowicz, Adam Antoni Kryński and Władysław Niedźwiedzki, called the “Warsaw” Dictionary. The material obtained from Swarsz was subjected to a semic analysis discussed from the viewpoint of the semantic field theory as approached by Ryszard Tokarski. What was considered archisems was kobiecość (femininity) ([+Human being], [–Childish], [–Male]) and an extramarital erotic relation, where the archisem [–Marriage] refers directly to the archisem [+Erotic relation]. The analysed vocabulary group was characterised in terms of hierarchical relations, genetics, stylistics, word formation and chronology.
