Summary/Abstract: Striy is a city in the Lviv region around 75 kilometers south of Lviv. Polish culture, history and tradition have spread there through the Polish community living in the area. Currently, the Association of Polish Culture of the Lviv Land is one of the organisations involved in the process. The organisation aims to bring together the Polish minority, but also engage their members in cultivating and propagating Polish culture, history and tradition. The main aim of the present article is to discuss the linguistic situation of the Polish community on the basis of the three chosen linguistic biographies. The linguistic data, gathered in July 2018 during a dialectological expedition, comprises interviews conducted with bilingual or multilingual representatives of particular generations.
