Languages of publication
The river Wieprzówka is an approximately 30 km long, left tributary of the Skawa river in the western part of Lesser Poland. The paper presents critical comments and remarks on the entries in question published in the 12th volume of the series “Hydronymia Europaea” in 1996. Extensive use of contemporary maps, historical sources and some other published and unpublished materials has enabled the author to correct and / or enrich our knowledge of the river names of that area. In particular, many historical names which, according to the authors of the volume, referred to objects that no longer exist or are nameless, now can be unequivocally identified with local rivers and streams. Among the etymological remarks contained in the paper, perhaps the most interesting are those aiming at the reconstruction of a topographic term *krakovъ > *kraków connected with the arboreal flora.
