Summary/Abstract: The author locates her reflection within the anthropological linguistics current which refers to the cognitive approach to language. She analyses lexemes having the same source: "miasto" (city) and "miejsce" (place) which appeared in the Old Polish language (till the 16th century). The semasiological and onomasiological analyses of linguistic material excerpted from etymological and historical dictionaries of Polish language present the reciprocal relations in the conceptualisation of the notions MIASTO (city) and MIEJSCE (place) from the panchronic perspective.
