Abstract: The article describes Walery Pisarek’s connections with the Silesian region. Two aspects are highlighted. Firstly, his work as a miner in a coal mine, where young Walery Pisarek was serving his sentence, imprisoned as a student for active involvement in an anti-communist resistance movement. Secondly, Professor’s ties with Silesian universities, when he was already working as a linguist and a media expert at the Jagiellonian University. His scientific merits made him honored with the title of doctor honoris causa of the University of Silesia. The article also presents Walery Pisarek’s opinion opposed to the controversial thesis that the Silesian dialect is a regional language – Walery Pisarek stated that from a linguistic point of view, Silesian is not a separate language, but a group of dialects.
