 Did you not see the response I gave to your message?
 I said, the article by Y. Malkiel "Studies in irreversible binominals" 
 Lingua 8, 113-60. (1959) has been reprinted in Y. Malkiel (1968) Essays on 
 Linguistic Themes. Oxford: Blackwell. This volume is available to purchase 
 from amazon.co.uk. There are 2 copies on offer for �43.56 each. However, if 
 you don't want to purchase this book you might try a university library. It 
 is available for loan from the School of Oriental and African Studies 
 library in London, for example.
 I also said that irreversible binominals are described and discussed in the 
 following works:
 Angus Maciver (1983) First Aid in English. Revised Edition. Glasgow: Gibson
 & Sons. p. 29. (called "Doubles")
 Angus Maciver (1986) The New First Aid in English. Revised Edition. Glasgow:
 Gibson & Sons. p. 119. (called "Doubles")
 Randolph Quirk, et. al. (1985) A Comprehensive Grammar of The English
 Language. London: Longman. pp. 971, 1487.
 D. A. Cruse (1986) Lexical Semantics. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
 pp. 39-40, 47.
 Howard Jackson (2002) Lexicography. An Introduction. London: Routledge. pp.
 5, 86, 99.
 To access these works without purchasing them you might also try a 
 university library.

Dear John,

Thank you very much. Yes, I've read your messages but didn't have time to answer until today. 
When I got you first msg I had already ordered Malkiel's Essays on Linguistic Themes on Amazon so I'll have my own copy (it was a rash decision as I wasn't sure the text I was looking for was actually there:). 
I'll try to locate the other sources.
Coming back to your question, I'm trying to compare the use of binominals in English and Polish.
