Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to present the main problems related to the creation of a list of headwords for a diplomatic dictionary. The author compares the lists of headwords of various existing dictionaries, then explains the specificity of her own dictionary (a part of the lexicographic research project „Diplomacy and politics. Russian-Polish dictionary survey”). In order to facilitate the headword selection in this project, ‘a correlation test’ is used. The test consists of checking the frequence of occurrence of potential headwords. The author also raises the issue of objectivity in building a list of headwords using this method.
