The chapter discusses the various conceptualizations of twarz ‘face’ in Polish based on the framework proposed by Bogdanowska-Jakubowska (2010), along with its synonyms and their own semantic extensions. The rich network of synonyms of twarz in Polish is discussed with regard to their etymology and place in the conceptual system expressed in the Polish language with a view to describing the various linguistic, cognitive, and cultural phenomena that led to their emergence. The conceptualizations of other body part terms semantically related to ‘face’, such as ‘head’ and ‘mouth’ are also discussed within the framework. The analysis leads to conclusions concerning the function of synonyms of twarz ‘face’ and metonymically related concepts in Polish.
