Summary/Abstract: The main purpose of this work is to present the development of lexemes which refer to various parts of the body in the Polish language used in order to determine spatial relations in the context of other, non-cognate language. Section 1 contains an overview of the mechanisms and the most important changes which are strictly associated with process of the grammaticalisation of expressions which refer to parts of the body, whereas Section 2 constitutes a description and an analysis of expressions which refer to various parts of the body in the Polish language juxtaposed with analogous expressions in other languages which were researched by Svorou (1933) and by Heine et al. (1991).
