The article attempts at reviewing of the terminology connected with literary character referring to Nalkowska's novels, diary, and journalistic papers. Nalkowska's composing the personological dictionary is for the authoress one of the most vital element of a man's philosophy which the writer gradually develops. An important aspect of this dictionary is the writer's marked interrelation between the literary-critical and psychological terminology. As a result, the authoress analyses Nałkowska's use of the terms of 'matter', 'type', 'character', investigates the frequency of the characters' names, and the specific use of the word 'man' as an element of aphorisms inserted into novels and diary. The final part of the article refers to the terminology of Nalkowska's literary workshop with created by Narcissa's authoress expressions of 'reality of writing', 'experienced reality', 'authenticity'. In the concluding paragraph, the authoress notices the specifically understood expansion of Nalkowska's dictionary. An expression of its power is pervading of Nalkowska's terminology into the dictionary of her commentators, which proves the pertinence and autonomy of personalistic language greatly influencing Nalkowska's portraying her characters.
