In the present paper, dialectal designations of 'bricklayer', as registered in the 8th lexical volume of the General Slavonic Linguistic Atlas (OLA), are compared to earlier instances of those designations in the Slavonic area. The geographical distribution of the designations, in OLA published in detail, is here presented in outline only, but rare and sporadic designations, or those occuring in isolated cases beyond their core area, are located more precisely. The author deals with relations between literary designations and those, of dialectal origin, found in OLA, with the history of these designations, with how borrowings were spread in the Slavonic area as well as with changes in their teritorial distribution, i. e. all such phenomena that could not be included in OLA. This provides us with a more complex insight into the Slavonic designations of 'bricklayer' in dialects as well as in literary languages.
