Languages of publication
The subject of the article is Polish surnames appearing in telephone books of the Ruhr Basin. Presented in it are means of adaptation of Polish surnames to the German language's system. It is shown that despite adaptation it is possible to observe traces of Polish dialects in the surnames of Poles in Germany. These surnames do not differ in structure or frequency from surnames functioning in Poland, although there are among them some not attested today. Also several morphological and semantic types attract the onomastician's particular attention.
