Summary/Abstract: A dialect of the Podhale region is represented by three functional styles: the colloquial, artistic and literary style. They differ, among others frequency of use and type of loanwords. The literary style is dominated by Hungarian, Slovakian, Germanisms, Romanian, and in the artistic style (mainly in folksongs (przyśpiewki)) Anglicisms appear. Colloquial style in terms of loanwords is the least expressive, old loanwords belong to the recessive vocabulary, and Anglicisms do not have such a punching force as in joking and ironic folksongs.
