Summary/Abstract: The article describes the presence of regionalisms in the Polish language dictionary. Using the example of the Cracovian regional vocabulary analysis in the post-war Polish language dictionaries, it demonstrates that its description is unsatisfactory. This is due to, among others, lack of knowledge about the regional differences and disregard of them; it is linked to the assumption that the unification of the Polish language is increasing. The author notes the vitality of regionalisms and contemporary changes in their functioning which show their social role. Therefore, she advocates for the change of the anachronistic attitude of lexicographers and formulates conclusions regarding selection and description criteria for regionalisms in the Polish language dictionary.
