Summary/Abstract: The article provides an analytic description of the vocabulary of the dialect largely identified with Gródek Podolski with reference to dialects in neighbouring villages having close ties to the town. I propose to prepare a dictionary which would show the status of the Polish language in small towns at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries. It will expand current knowledge about Polish language usage in the Eastern Borderlands. A dictionary becomes an indisputably important source for transmission of the knowledge of culture, customs, and history. In this paper, I present the main methodological assumptions and analyse certain difficulties associated with any lexicographic description of a dialect.
