Summary/Abstract: The paper presents the rules for presenting aspect pairs in Polish dictionaries against the background of the development of aspectology. Aspect partners were hardly recognised and connected to each other in the oldest dictionaries in the 17th and 18th centuries. Dictionaries from the 19th centuries until the last decade of the 20th century generally put suffixal and suppletive pairs into one lexical entry and neglected prefixal pairs not even cross referring to them. The situation changed only at the turn of the 20th and the 21st centuries, when dictionaries provided prefixal pairs with cross reference from pf partners to ipf ones or from ipf to pf. Presentation of aspect pairs in dictionaries follows the evolution of the theory of verbal aspect, albeit several dozenyears behind.
