Summary/Abstract: The paper Gallicisms as the derivational basis for Polish words analyses selected Gallicisms, i.e. words borrowed to Polish from French, in terms of their capacity to constitute a derivational basis for Polish words. It was stated that these words – mainly those belonging to the common inflection and colloquial registers – constitute a good basis for word-formation. Simple derivatives: suffixal, prefixal and interfixal are formed on this basis. Attention was also given to the simultaneous borrowing of words from the French language or word forms with a common root (lexical morpheme) from French and other languages (mainly Latin and German), which causes a variety of difficulties in performing a synchronic analysis. Therefore, the author of this paper believes that in this case a synchronic analysis needs to be supplemented with a diachronic analysis. Trans. M. Czarnecka
