The aim of this article is not only to describe the derivational nests created around the prepositions of space but also to show how people notice and name things. The name is not a photograph of an object but its anthropocentric interpretation. That is why in the structure of words derived from the prepositions of space we find not only the information about the space but also the ways of thinking by the given society. Furthermore, the article contains the graph of spatial prepositions. The analysis of the graph leads to the conclusion that derivational activity focuses on creating nominal parts of speech: nouns and adjectives. Quite often there are compound prepositions and adverbs. However, other parts of speech, such as: verbs, adverbial pronouns, particles and conjunctions appear in mentioned nests only sporadically.
