Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
The author proves once again that the history of lexical items is the history of lexical fields. The analysis is based on extensive material, excerpted also from less known Old Polish sources. Polilexy (with clearly bounded centre and the peripheries) is typical for the history of the field of 'ACCUSATIO'. The elements were changing over the years. In the Old Polish the centre was dominated by mourning which was during the 16th century replaced by plaint. The modern composition of the field (plaint, accusation, appeal, charge) was formed during the 18th century.
