The authoress confirms the authenticity of examples of 'akanie' that appear in the novel 'Lesnik', written by Kuncewiczowa, where dialectal stylisation was used. The examples in question appear in feminine nouns (singular, instrumental case) ended with -a and they were considered as non-authentic by other researchers. The authoress of the article presents examples found in contemporary dialectal texts from the region of the old north-eastern borderland. They confirm that forms of instrumental that end with -a are not neologisms or potential forms but they reflect real phenomenon observed in Polis language of this region.
