Summary/Abstract: The term socio-lexicography, even though rarely encountered in Polish linguistic papers, is oft en used in foreign (in particular Russian) publications in the area of lexicography theory. Some researchers refer it to the lexicographic description of a community (or, more broadly, sub-standard) lexicon, whereas others assume that socio-lexicography examines the manner in which social processes are reflected in dictionaries. The author of the paper presents a review of works that take into account both possibilities of understanding this concept and also indicates detailed issues and research perspectives which are included within the discussed current of lexicography.
