Summary/Abstract: Linguistic mythological heritage preserved in S.B. Linde’s Słownik języka polskiego ‘Polish dictionary’, comprises mainly one-word mythologisms, i.e. mythologically-motivated lexemes. The subject of my query are those Polish mythologisms, and that are lexicographically marked in Linde’s dictionary (are entries or subentries). The paper discusses the problem of mythological sources and that of textual lexical mythologisms; it isolates groups of mythological names, and describes Linde’s lexicographical notation of the selected linguistic units (among others, their place in the macro- and microstructure of the dictionary, qualification, markings, abbreviations, information on the origin, definition and isolation of secondary meanings).
