This article presents the history and the current state of etymology research in Poland as well as a detailed description of main works written by Polish etymologists. It analyzes research methods, ways of description and the scientific value of etymological dictionaries of Polish (edited by A. Bruckner, F. Slawski, A. Bankowski, and W. Borys), popular etymological dictionaries of Polish (edited by K. Dlugosz-Kurczabowa and I. Malmor), diachronic etymological dictionaries of Old Polish (edited by W. Decyk-Zieba and S. Dubisz), and the first Slavic etymological dictionary of a dialect, namely a dictionary of Kashubian (edited by W. Borys and H. Popowska-Taborska). Moreover, the paper discusses etymological dictionaries of other languages edited by Polish scholars. These include the etymological dictionary of Proto-Slavic (edited by F. Slawski), Polabian (edited by K. Polanski), and Lithuanian (edited by W. Smoczynski). Finally, the paper points out the current needs of Polish etymology, in particular the necessity of compiling an etymological dictionary that would include contemporary, old, and dialectal vocabulary of Polish.
