Summary/Abstract: The paper consists of three parts. Having characterised the region, local population, and linguistic situation (with a detailed description of education in Polish minority schools), the author introduces fragments of transcribed audio recordings of interviews with students of a Polish grammar school, as well as examples of their communications on Facebook. The author analyses the authentic language code used by the members of the Polish minority and compares it with both Polish and Czech, arriving at the conclusion that it is a hybrid (mixed) interdialect with elements of both Polish and, predominantly, of Czech.
