Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the question of transformation of the numeral system in the Polish immigrant dialect spoken in two villages in Western Siberia: Znamenka (Bogradsky District of the Republic of Khakassia) and Alexandrovka (Krasnoturansky District of Krasnoyarsk Krai). The roots of the given immigrant dialect go back to Masurian group of Masovian dialect. The comparison of material in question to Mazurian dialect in Poland shows such innovations as the Russian syntax model of compound ordinal numerals, the development of paucal forms of nouns, the expression of personality by independent use of numerals. The original numerals for ‘40’ and ‘90’, that do not have Russian cognates, were replaced by borrowings. These phenomena are closely connected to general trend of language attrition in the immigrant community.
