Keywords: efficiency; effectiveness; semantic class
Summary/Abstract: Although the term „effective” has been functioning for years in linguistic terminology (both in the field of word formation and classification of types of actions), there are no clearly defined semantic criteria allowing to group lexemes within this class. The author observes the strategies used in selected dictionaries of contemporary Polish language (SJPD, ISJP, USJP and WSJP) to define verbs recognized by researchers as effective (they are mainly deverbal formations, modifying the meaning brought by the basis, cf. verbs with prefixes nad-, pod-, przy- and prze-, eg., nadciąć, podleczyć, przyciemnić, przesolić). On this basis, the author formulates preliminary conclusions on efficiency.
