In Poland, salary is the main word used to describe income from work. In practice however, people use a variety of expressions, depending on how the work contract they are referring to is formulated. This discrepancy frequently creates confusion as to which exact word should be used in which specific instance. The goal of this text is to precisely define those different words. In the article the names for remuneration, which are most frequently used, are listed, their meaning is discussed, their origin and subtle differences are outlined. The question, how the changes in labour relations and salary systems influence creation of new vocabulary, and how they change is answered.
