Summary/Abstract: Professor Teresa Orłoś, an outstanding Polish bohemist, has authored numerous works on the history of the Czech language, and historical and contemporary lexicology and lexicography. Beside linguistic problems in Czech philology, she has strongly emphasized the need of study and the characteristic of mutual Czech-Polish and Polish-Czech contacts. She has demonstrated the Czech influence on mediaeval and 16th c. Polish, but also the importance of Polish for the Czech language when it was recovering in the 19th c. from a serious decline. Professor Orłoś passed away in 2009. The contemporary part of her research is mainly represented by her phraseological works and rich lexicographic activities, conducted together with the linguistic team she led.
