Summary/Abstract: The book has a reporting and systematizing character. Having analyzed the existing – and already abundant – literature on the subject, the authors show a comprehensive outline of over one hundred years’ output of the Polish language linguistics in the field of urban research, and lay out the fundamentals of the most frequently undertaken topics related to the diversified urban space. The publication serves as a guidebook to linguistic research on the language of city dwellers and urban textual content and may be an inspiration for independent studies in the field. The target audience is the general public. The book will resonate well with professionals and laymen with a shared interest in the city, its space and inhabitants.
