PHRASEOLOGICAL UNITS RELATING TO FRANCE AND FRENCHMEN IN THE POLISH DICTIONARIES
The paper deals with Polish phraseological units containing the toponymic name Francja ‘France’ and the adjective francuski ‘French’, derived from the ethnic name Francuz ‘Frenchman’, found in twenty dictionaries of modern and ancient Polish. The corpus includes about fifty general and specialised collocations and idioms, which are basically described from the perspective of their lexicographic treatment. Besides, some of those units belong to thematic fields such as cooking, fashion or love, and present French people as delicate and elegant, which coincides with their contemporary perception in Poland.
