    The author examined metaphorical concepts in this Czech parody of the famous work by Božena Němcová (The Grandmother). Based on excerpts, an analysis of metaphorical concepts was conducted. Whenever possible, the author took etymology into account during the research. „Babička po pitvě” (BPP) is a parody, as indicated already by its very title. Assurance comes with the finding of a mirrored condensed morphology of BPP with respect to the original. Both BPP and The Grandmother contain 18 chapters and four identical plot lines. To parody the original, Hynek uses formal sentence structures, simple syntax prevails, often exacerbated to the extreme, thus giving a simplified and scholarly limited impression. The characters in BPP are exposed as: ethnocentric, naive, limited, religious, belonging to a foreign language affiliation, vulgar, capricious, altruistic, sexually unsatisfied or only temporarily satisfied. The image of the world in Staré bělidlo (Old Bleaching Ground) is: prejudiced, superstitious, anthropocentric, subjective, superficial, limited, firmly grounded in the natural cycle and traditions associated with it. Procedures and traditional findings of cognitive linguistics/ language picture of the world have been positively verified. The morbid, Erotic, socially incorrect, cynical, dissonant as well as poetic and gentle satire of BPP thus represents an eccentric and rich foam of comedy, however, under its thick surface we find more serious content, raising social, moral and value issues; using parody, BPP thus fundamentally challenges the traditional values demonstrated in The Grandmother.

    The article is dedicated to anonymous 16th century religious Easter songs recorded in manuscript L 1684, which is part of the collection of the Diocese Library in Sandomierz. The manuscript, discovered by the article’s author, belonged to the Bernardine convent in Radom; parts of it were created in the second half of the 16th century, in the second half of the 17th century or in the early 18th century. The song Wszechmogący Ojca Najwyższego Syn Jezu Chryst is a mystery play song with references to religious Easter songs popular among the Bernardines, as well as songs included by Mikołaj from Wilkowieck in his mystery play, which revolves around motifs from the Scriptures and Biblical apocrypha. The song Chrystus Pan Zmartwychwstał includes diverse material where a text by Jakub Lubelczyk serves as a frame for the middle verses. The framework includes appellative prayers of the living for the dead (suffragia) from the 15th and 16th centuries, previously presented in the last part of Bogurodzica. The discovered texts offer previously unknown variants of mystery songs and procession litanies.

    The article’s author turns to the example of Rozmyślanie przemyskie in order to demonstrate how transcriptions of text were affected by editors’ opinions on the Polish syntax of the 15th century. At the same time, the transcription influenced opinions of the readers. To this end, selected elements of two different transcriptions of Rozmyślanie przemyskie have been compared, namely excerpts from Chrestomatia staropolska and the equivalent excerpts from the version edited by Wacław Twardzik and Feliks Keller. Special attention has been paid to issues related to sentence delimitation in the transcription, which strongly affects the image of the 15th century Polish syntax reflected in the specific historical editions. Supplements to the text, introduced by editors and inspired by source suggestions, have also been submitted to a syntax analysis. The same holds true for conjunctions and prepositions “extracted” from the onsets or the codas of words included in the Freiburg edition. Both editions present different pictures of the historical text’s syntax which stemmed from their editors’ varying approaches to the text. Therefore, depending on the actual edition, the reader will be provided with different answers to the following key questions revolving around Polish syntax: what type of predicate combinations prevailed?; how strong was the predicative nature of participle constructs?; how long were the sentences?

    The article offers a comparison of lexical Germanisms which occur in the urban sub-dialects of Brno and Poznań, two cities located at a significant distance from each other. The analysed vocabulary has been divided into: A) words which are part of the general German language, B) words which could not be classified as German due to the following criteria: a) chronological, b) stylistic, c) limited territory, d) unofficial nature and e) social. The analysis has demonstrated that, despite there being no contact between the two cities, as many as 32 words (preferences) in the sub-dialects have identical or similar meaning.

    The aim of the article is to assess the quality of phonetic and orthophonetic knowledge presented in the academic textbook by Tomasz Karpowicz entitled Polish Language Culture.

An analysis of phonetic and orthophonetic information has identified numerous factual mistakes and gaps, as many pronunciation problems requiring definition of correct standards were disregarded.

    The Łužiski serbski slownik by Křesćan Bohuwěr Pful originated as a result of the Sorbian national revival. As a revival dictionary, it presents a rich collection of words in which borrowings from other Slavic languages abound, accompanied by the dictionary author’s vocabulary proposals. Among other word forms, Pful suggested 95 verbs which reflect very diversified lexical resources with impressive word formations. Various derivatives have been identified with respect to the basis upon which they were formed, including adjectival, noun, verb, adverbial, pronoun and numeral as well as compound verbs. Some of the verb formations suggested by Pful have been incorporated into the lexical resources of Upper Sorbian. Keywords

    In the introduction to his article, the author refers to a dissertation on the names of male religious orders and societies (cf. Sł. Oc. t., r. SIOc 69, 2012, s. 45-80; 3). The article has been broken down into three basic parts: I. names of female religious orders which have (earlier) male counterparts, e.g. filipinki : filipini, józefiłki : józefie: II. autogenic names which are not structures derived from male order names like e.g. precjozynki, sakramentki, III. various semantic and word-formation related issues. It turns out that most frequently, female names are formed with the feminative suffix -ka in singular or -ki in plural and the extended suffix -anka, -ynka in singular / -anki -ynki in plural. These formations are far less complex than in the masculine names. The source materials used by the author are the same as in analyses of male religious orders and societies; they are presented as a list of abbreviations at the end of the article.

    Obraz pasterzy w staropolskich kolędach i pastorałkach (na materiale tzw. „kantyczek karmelitańskich” z XVII I XVIII wieku) cz. II

    This article is an attempt at reconstructing the image reflected in Old Polish Christmas carols of the activities pursued by shepherds following the news of the Saviour’s birth. The analysed material comes from the so-called “Carmelite Canticles” written in the 18th century for the Krakow female Carmelites. The research results suggest that a large part of the stories included in the Carmelite manuscripts of Christmas carols were modelled on the compositional structure of a classic Polish Christmas carol. This consisted of three elements: 1) the angels notifying the shepherds that the Saviour was born; 2) the confusion among the awoken shepherds, their preparations for leaving and the trip to Bethlehem; 3) paying homage to the Infant Jesus on arrival, presenting their gifts, shared celebrations at the manger and the shepherds’ return home. The analysed works demonstrate that the described events bear a strong Polish touch. In old Polish carols the shepherds were presented as a group of impoverished yet well-organized members of a rural society, capable of rational decisions and specific activities in unaccustomed circumstances. Special attention should be paid to the hierarchy among shepherds; it favoured the elder and best educated individuals, collective decision-making and care for all members of the shepherding community, including those less physically fit. The image of the shepherds preserved in the carols is very realistic, diversified and dynamic. Their quite detailed descriptions give an indication of how the poor lived in Polish villages of the 17th and 18th centuries and how well these communities were organized.
