Siedem pojedynków ze skradającym się krabem


In this linguistically-philological essay, the author familiarizes the reader with lexical richness of the Polish language. Designing a crossword containing 100 letters, according to the scrabble rules, he conducts an analysis of earlier masterly constellations (the record in 2006 was 3973) in order to go beyond the limits of 400 points, which he forecasted in “Teksty Drugie” in 1990. So as to get the record results, the author was forced to figure out the strategy of filigrene (‘granulations’), consisting in adding a letter after the letter of extension (e.g. BA, BAR, BARĆ or AR, ARA, ARAK) as well as using the technique of a combination of three 15-letter with 10-letter as well as 8-letter words to avoid any “useless” (non-functional) word. The basis of the game is the exploitation of all contemporary dictionaries and infrequent words (e.g. “zadosyćuczyńmyż”, it being incredible for most of the Poles).
