Summary/Abstract: The paper discusses methodological issues in historical dialectology. The author concentrates on Polish of the Southern Borderland in the 17th and 18th centuries and provides a comprehensive overview of relevant literature. The paper demonstrates that in studying the Polish language of that period and region it is necessary to apply complex methodology, which would take into account both the classical philological-retrospective method, as well as insights from language contact, comparative linguistics, sociolinguistics and quantitative linguistics.
