'Gramatyka konfrontatywna bulgarsko-polska' (The Polish- Bulgarian confrontative grammar; 1990-2007) (GKBP) is the first and so far the only attempt at a comprehensive semantic confrontation with a gradually developing interlanguage. The entire GKBP comprises 8 parts in 12 volumes. The analysis proceeds from content to form. The study of the semantic interlanguage made it possible to draw two parallel grammars: a grammar of contemporary Polish and a grammar of contemporary Bulgarian. The semantic category analysis employed in the study allows for a coherent confrontative description irrespective of whether languages in question utilize grammatical exponents of meaning. GKBP is situated in the mainstream of the contemporary confrontative approach based on the logical theory of quantification, the process theory of 'Petri nets', as well as on the theories of logical predicate-argument structure. The study at hand removes rigid distinctions between the grammatical and the lexical and introduces a number of novel observations into the field.
