Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is a reconstruction of the lingual stereotype of an inhabitant of Cracow. The authors take into consideration both an internal perspective of the local community and an external perspective of people who do not belong to this social group. For our research we have chosen names of Cracow’s inhabitans – “krakus” and “krakuaer”, as opposed to “krakowianin” that are carriers of local cultural and historic heritage. Therefore, in the analysis, the authors take a semasiological point of view investigating in texts subtle semantic differences between the mentioned lexemes, consequently recreating the stereotypical image of an inhabitant of Cracow. The material analyzed in the article consists of regional literature, texts from the National Corpus of Polish, other internet texts and results of survey research.
