Abstract:
			
The book presents unique literature in a minority ethnolect - the
Germanic dialect of Wilamowice in southern Poland. The manuscripts,
written at the beginning of the 20th century, were discovered in 1989.
The book contains full versions of several texts written by Florian
Biesik, who decided to create a literary standard for Wilamowicean in
order to prove its non-German, but possibly Anglo-Saxon, Dutch,
Flemish, or Frisian origin. Thus it presents both the dialectal
literature and the most important elements of the local culture during
the final stage of its extinction.
