Summary/Abstract: The object of the discussion in this paper is manifestations of language awareness of Polish rural inhabitants contained in Wybór polskich tekstów gwarowych (A selection of Polish dialectal texts) by K. Nitsch. They concern various layers of language: territorial variation (language in the geographical perspective), chronological variation (temporary qualifi cation of dialectal lexemes), and realised phonetic features (a type of selective language awareness). Linguistic comments of rural informers are a testimony of their refl ective attitude towards the language they use (a metalinguistic function).
