Summary/Abstract: The article presents a detailed, critical analysis of the popular lexicon by Waldemar Wierzba {Słownik gwary poznańskiej. Z naszego na polski – z polskiego na nasze}. In the paper, lexicographic tools are applied in order to describe precisely both macrostructure and microstructure of this publication. This allows the authors to indicate serious shortcomings of the lexicon as far as methodology and editing are concerned, as well as point to obvious cases of copying of entry articles (up to 82.6%) from the academic publication {Słownik gwary miejskiej Poznania}, edited by Monika Gruchmanowa and Bogdan Walczak. The outcome is a lexicon of popular character created on the basis of a scientific study, although Waldemar Wierzba clearly saw no need to mention the resources.
